Gordon Fredrick "Fred" Keating, 67, of Stow, Maine, passed away June 10, 2013 at Bridgton Hospital. His spirit remains forever with his family, the refuge he built, the wolves he rescued, and all those whose lives he touched.
Fred was born Jan. 12, 1946 in Weymouth, Mass. to Gordon Keating and Evelyn (King) Keating. He graduated from Hingham High School. He moved to the Mount Washington Valley area in the 1970s to be closer to nature. During this time he acquired his first wolfdog, Loki, who inspired a lifelong dedication to wolf and wolfdog advocacy. He founded Loki Clan Wolf Refuge in 1993 with the belief "if you can not give me a place to live, at least give me a place to die." Fred Keating gave hundreds of animals a place to live, to die, and now he will be given his turn, to be buried at the refuge among the wolves.
