      MEDIA — A longtime Milton businessman died Monday evening in Media.

      Walter Strine Sr., who purchased and developed numerous Milton properties over the years, most notably the Rockwell Center, died at age 100.

      He founded Media Real Estate Co. in 1945. One of his two surviving sons, William Strine, now serves as president and CEO of the company. His other son, Walter Strine Jr., is a partner in Commonwealth Real Estate Investors, Media, where Walter Sr. and William served as the other two partners.

      “Walter was a great businessman that never forgot his roots,” said Jeff Coup, president of The Coup Agency, who knew of Strine’s legacy. “Even though he didn’t live here long, he remained loyal to Milton.

      “He owned real estate and invested in Milton and visited many times.”

      Jeff Cadorette, vice president of administration and development at Media Real Estate, said Strine was active in the Media community as a longtime member of the Rotary Club, where he served as past president. He also served as a district governor.

      The oldest graduate of Williamson Free School of the Mechanical Trades, Media, Strine donated $3.3 million toward the learning center and library, which was dedicated two years ago and named in his honor. He was a longtime member of the school’s board of trustees.

      Strine was also a contributor to numerous other Media causes, including the youth center.

      “From humble beginnings, his training was as a bricklayer,” said Cadorette. “He subsequently went to Wharton School (of Business at the University of Pennsylvania) where he got his real estate license.

      “He was just a legend around here as far as his being a real estate developer, what he’s done not only for Milton, but this community as well. He just had an incredible vision and incredible knack when it came to real estate and finding properties — almost unparalleled.”
