Then and Now

To truly appreciate the “then and now” of The Heritage Story, we have to look further back in time. Thank you to Mary Winter, a Denver journalist and granddaughter of a close friend, the late Chris Opp, for putting the “bits and pieces” of Chick’s life story together for his autobiography in 2003. His book was written to share his legacy with the generations of his family to come. Portions of that book are reprinted here with permission from Chick and Mary Winter. We share this history in tribute to the American Dream, and to pass along the lessons learned over the years that may also benefit readers (and their children) for many years to come.
