Dr. Stuart L. Yunis, a pioneer in the field of nephrology, passed away on March 16. He was 79 years old.
Dr. Yunis was a well-respected physician – and a beloved family man. He left Dartmouth following his third year, receiving early admission to SUNY Syracuse medical school. After graduation, he became chief resident at LIJ and later became double board certified in both internal medicine and nephrology. Dr. Yunis founded a very successful medical practice in Lake Success with specialists in every field. He also created the first in-house dialysis department at LIJ and later moved to St. Francis Hospital in Roslyn, where he launched the in-house dialysis unit.
While perfectly appropriate, “beloved husband and loving father” only scratches the surface when describing the fascinating life of Joe Mansi, which came to an end on March 18, 2013. Journalism was a common thread during his 77 years, so the best way to do this story justice is though the words of this prototypical P.R. man himself.
“I began my career as a newsman with the International News Service, which later merged with United Press to become United Press International. I reported for the New York, Philadelphia and Chicago bureaus and was a member of the organization’s Special Service Bureau. But during my tenure there, I was drafted into the United States Army. It was 1958, the Korean War was over and Vietnam had yet to come.” So, with a college degree in tow (albeit not in a journalism-related field, he discovered his true calling while earning a bachelor of science degree in accounting from New York University’s Stern School of Business), the 23-year-old headed off to basic training at Fort Dix and it was there that through a series of coincidences, the fascinating journey that would define his life began to take form.
