I'm sorry, but an aggressive rooster should not be kept. If I were you I'd hang on to him for another month or so, sometimes they'll have a peak in aggressiveness (hitting puberty) and then will calm down a little. But if he continues to be mean, I would 100% sell or eat him.

You can try to train him by walking toward him every time you go in the run. Make him move out of your space, every time. If he continues to be aggressive, I wouldn't keep him. An aggressive rooster can ruin your whole chicken experience. Once he is gone, you can freely enjoy your chickens again.

Do I have to have a rooster for my Hen's to lay eggs someone said they would stop laying?

There are still good reasons to keep a rooster besides fertile eggs. If you can train this human aggressive behavior out of him, he sounds like he's a good protective rooster for your girls.
