Dr. Stuart S. Pines , 87, of Bellaire, Texas, passed away on September 23, 2012. He was predeceased by his wife of 53 years, Nancy Glass Pines. Stuart was a native of Peekskill, New York and was a practicing physician there for over 35 years. He graduated from the Citadel Military College of South Carolina and received his medical degree from State University of New York College of medicine at Syracuse.
