Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law

Frater Wolfe (aka Damien Bruce Patton) died peaceably in his sleep on the Feast of Lughnasadh, August 1st 2011ev. aged 30, the cause of death has been determined as Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome.

Frater Wolfe was the first National Grand-Master of the Irish Order of Thelema and had been inaugurated at Samhain, just nine months before his death. His inauguration involved a rite of union with the land according to the Irish tradition of the ‘Banfheis Ri’, no-one could have guessed that within such a short time he would be returned to the womb of the Goddess, and his body committed to the earth.

Wolfe had previously been a member of the OTOF, where he received his first initiation at the age of 18 and eventually went on to serve as President of the Electoral College of the Irish Kingdom and as a Priest and Bishop within its associated EGC. Damien was also sworn in service to the Great Work of the A . ‘ . A . ‘ . He was a truly devoted Thelemite.

He was also a talented artist and a keen musician, a singer/songwriter and founding member and drummer of the Thelemic rock band Spiral Force. He also studied martial arts from childhood, becoming Northern Irelands youngest ever brown belt in Tai-Jutsu at the age of 9. Damien was helping to develop the Red Branch school of Irish martial arts when he passed away.

Wolfe was loved by all who knew him, as evidenced in the massive turnout to his funeral service. He was a true friend, an honorable gentleman, with a big heart and a big smile. The service in Celebration of his Greater Feast was conducted in accord with his wishes by the Irish Order of Thelema at the family home, before a large gathering of family, friends and brethren, on August 5th 2011ev.

He will be sorely missed. However those who are left behind are determined to carry on his legacy and ensure that the work he began endures and prospers. The membership of the Irish Order of Thelema are now more resolute than ever that the work of the Order, so admirably begun, shall wax in strength and a friend of Damien’s has already agreed to pick up the drum sticks and complete the album and gigging schedule of Spiral Force. The wheel revolves and the work continues. Damien’s life may have been brief, but he lived it well.

Hail and Farewell Wolfe!

“…Now let it be understood: If the body of the King dissolve, he shall remain in pure ecstasy forever. Nuit! Hadit! Ra-Hoor-Khuit! The Sun, Strength & Sight, Light; these are for the servants of the Star & the Snake.” – Liber AL 1;21

Love is the law, love under will
