Dennis Neal Stine (born April 20, 1952) is a businessman from his native Lake Charles, Louisiana,[1] who served from 1987 to 1988 as a Democrat in the Louisiana House of Representatives for District 33 Calcasieu Parish in the southwestern portion of his state. He won a special election in 1987 to succeed J. Burton Andrepont, who resigned with a year remaining in his second term. Elected to a term of his own that same year, Stine suddenly resigned the seat[2] to become commissioner of administration for newly elected Governor Buddy Roemer.


Stine is the fifth of seven children of a couple from Sulphur in Calcasieu Parish, Jackson W. Stine, who established Stine Lumber Company, and the former Doris Rita "DeeDee" Drost (1921–2010). In 1970, Stine attended the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, then known as the University of Southwestern Louisiana. He switched thereafter to McNeese State University in Lake Charles, from which he received a Bachelor of Science degree in 1974. He is a member of the Delta Xi chapter of Kappa Alpha Order fraternity.[1] Since 1977, Stine has been an officer in the family-owned Stine, Inc., along with his five brothers.[1]

When Stine left the state House, his younger brother, Tim Stine, a Democrat, won the special election to fill the remainder of the term.[2]

Stine is a Roman Catholic and is active in the United Way of America and the American Red Cross, which named him the winner of its Clara Barton Award in 1983. He and his wife, the former Marla Kay Mitchell, married in 1975. They have four children, Jason, Laurie, Jana, and Benjamin Stine.[1]

The office of Louisiana Secretary of State Tom Schedler lists Stine in July 2017 as a registered Republican voter.[3]
