To all those who knew Steve Clover, he will always be remembered for his big smile, great sense of humor, and his willingness to always help others.

Steve was born in Philadelphia and grew up in Waukegan, Illinois, outside of Chicago. He graduated from Indiana University with a degree in journalism and art history.

He worked as a facility manager for Charter and operated his home improvement company using his flair for art and design.

He moved to New Hope in 2008 and quickly integrated himself into the community. He would tell stories of traveling through Europe and Mexico as a professional figure skater with Holiday on Ice. He had such fond memories of his fellow skaters and the adventures they shared; they were always a delight to hear. 

Steve loved the arts and was an accomplished knitter and weaver. He was a founder of Twist Knitting & Spinning’s Annual fundraiser for Autism speaks in Lahaska, Pa. On Wednesday evenings, Steve could be found in his favorite place at Twist with his favorite knitting circle of friends. He was always willing to lend a hand with the most difficult stitches and throw in a joke or two!

When it came to charity, Steve was always among the first to lend a helping hand. In 2000, he bicycled cross country from San Francisco to Charleston, South Carolina to raise money for those living with AIDS in Chicago’s homeless communities. In New Hope he attended fundraisers for FACT (Fighting AIDS Continuously Together).

Steve will be dearly missed by his family and by all the friends he made in New Hope, a place he loved to call “home.” 


Stephen Douglas Clover, of New Hope, PA passed away on Monday, February 8, 2021 in Bucks County, PA. He was 57.

Born in Philadelphia, PA to Edward Clover and the late Joan Mary Glynn (Mortimer), he resided in the Chicago land area, Myrtle Beach, SC, and Philadelphia PA again before moving to New Hope, PA in 2008.

He received a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Journalism and Art History from Indiana University, Indiana.

Stephen worked as an independently contracted facility manager for Charter, and operated his own handyman repair service. He was formerly a professional figure skater, and performed throughout Europe with Holiday on Ice. He helped found the Twisted Knitting & Spinning Annual Fundraiser for Autism Speaks in Lahaska, PA from 2003 to present. Stephen directed and participated in a San Francisco CA to Charleston SC cross country bicycling charity event, Transformation Rotation Project, to raise money to support the HIV impacted homeless community in Chicago, IL.
