1951- John Opeka & his wife Lillian started the business out of the 2-car garage at their home.

  • John’s long career included many loyal, longtime customers.
  • Growing up his son Dale spent most of his free time and weekends in the garage, learning the business from his dad.

1960- Opeka Auto opened our original building on Valley Brook Road.  At that time there were no other businesses or homes in the area.

1986- Dale took over the family business. At that time, we changed the name to Opeka Auto Repair Company Inc.

  • Opeka Auto expanded several times throughout the years to make it what we are today.
