Fire chief dies: Phil Clover, 58, dead after heart attack Sunday
By Cass Rains, Staff Writer Enid News and Eagle
The Enid News and Eagle Mon Oct 24, 2011, 01:00 AM CDT
ENID — Enid Fire Chief Phil Clover died Sunday in Tulsa after suffering an apparent heart attack. He was 58 years old.
        He served 34 years with the Enid Fire Department, joining in 1977 at the position of firefighter. He also served as a driver, lieutenant, captain and assistant chief before being selected by the Enid Fire Civil Service Commission Feb. 1, 1996, as chief.
        Clover received the Oklahoma State Fire Chiefs Association’s Fire Chief of The Year Award in 1999 and was commended by then-Gov. Frank Keating for this distinction. He also was responsible for expanding the department’s medical services and aided in securing a regional firefighter training facility for Northwest Oklahoma at Autry Technology Center.
        Those who worked with Clover remembered his passion for public safety and his drive to serve the Enid community.
        “Phil was not only a good friend, but he was a treasured fellow leader,” City Manager Eric Benson said. “He was a very good friend. He was an up-front guy, a true gentleman.
        “I feel very, very honored to have called him my friend.”
        Benson said he remembers a hot day when the city opened its dog park. Sparky the fire dog was out there interacting with children.
        “He was very energetic and big hit,” he said. “I was just sure it was one of those young guys from the department. He comes over to me and takes off the head of the outfit, and it was Phil Clover.”

April Danahy, who was on the civil service commission that promoted Clover to chief, recalled and lauded the chief’s efforts.
    “When he interviewed to become the fire chief in Enid, Okla., one of the things he wanted to do was to create positive images of the fire department, increase the image of the fire department,” she said. “He really wanted to make a difference and make the fire department a true community department and he did.”
        Danahy said Clover did whatever he could to improve Enid’s relationship with the department.
        “If it was putting on a Sparky suit and roller skating, he’d do it,” she said. “He wanted the fire department to be so much a part of this community, and I think he did that.”
        Fire Marshal Ken Helms said he and the members of the department were shocked to learn of the loss of their leader.
        “We’re all just all surprised and shocked to learn we’ve lost our chief,” he said. “He’s been a good boss and good co-worker. He’ll be missed.”
Helms said Clover was very active throughout the state in public safety organizations.
Enid Police Department Chief Brian O’Rourke said Clover was a friend and passionate about his job.
“Phil and I were good friends for the last 10, 11 years,” he said. “He’s done a lot for the fire department. He’s a great guy. He loved public safety and he had a passion for it.
        “He really cared about the city of Enid and he cared about the city of Enid Fire Department.”

Enid News & Eagle
ENID — Funeral service for Philip Raymond Clover, 58, will be 10 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 27, 2011, at First Baptist Church with Pastor Keith Miller officiating.  Burial will follow in Memorial Park Cemetery. Family visitation will be 6-8 p.m. today at Anderson-Burris Funeral Home.
    Philip was born July 10, 1953, in Enid, Okla., and went to be with his Lord on Sunday, Oct. 23, 2011, in Tulsa, Okla., doing what he loved most, helping his family.
        A true Enidite, Philip attended Garfield Elementary, Waller Junior High, Enid High School and Phillips University, graduating with bachelor degrees in secondary education and business.
        He married Terrie on June 26, 1987, in Enid, Okla.
        Philip began his career with the Enid Fire Department in 1977. He worked his way up through the ranks to Chief in 1996 and has served faithfully since. He was Enid’s youngest and longest-serving fire chief.
        Philip was selected by EHS Student Council as the recipient of the Pride of the Plainsmen award in 2010. In 1999, he received the Oklahoma State Fire Chiefs Association’s “Fire Chief of the Year” Award, the first-ever recipient.
        He served as president of the Fire Chief’s Association, chairman of the Red Cross, Our Daily Bread, local MDA and Salvation Army fundraising and Christmas in April. He was an avid Plainsmen booster.
        Philip’s career passion was Enid’s history and building tradition within the Fire Department. However, his true passion and love were his family. He gave selflessly and endlessly of himself to his wife, children and grandchildren. He was at every event possible from football games to programs to graduations and even sheep shows.
        Philip is survived by the love of his life, Terrie; his children, Jennifer and Brent Kisling of Enid, Okla., Jeff and Courtney Berg of Bixby, Okla., Andrea and Nathan Parker of Monument, Colo.; six grandchildren, Layne Kisling, Bree Kisling, Reagan Sibit, Jackson Berg, Creighton Berg and Charleigh Berg. He also is survived by Brad, Glorene and Desta Clover, and Jim and Jean Lewis.
        He was preceded in death by his sister, Debra Becker, and beloved grandparents, aunts and uncles.
        Memorial contributions may be made to Chief Clover’s Annual Firefighter Christmas Dinner (a favorite event of Philip’s for active and retired firefighters’ families to get together) or the Brent Hatcher Benevolent Fund (a fund for families of Oklahoma’s fallen firefighters).

        Philip, Dad, Pop — For so long you’ve been the ribbon that ran through our family and held it together, and now it’s hard to imagine you’re gone. But we hold close to our hearts the many memories and lessons you’ve taught us along the way. Through good times and bad you showed us the art of giving. Giving didn’t always mean gifts and money, but by being there to lend support, you gave of yourself. Thank you for being the most wonderful and amazing husband, Dad and Pop. We will love you and miss you forever!
