Eric Cooper

Eric Cooper is in charge of the San Antonio Food Bank. When his father left his mother and the family, Eric stepped in as a breadwinner. With each check he wrote, each bill he helped pay, he resented his father a little more. Finally, he felt he had to confront the man who had left such a tremendous burden behind. His story is about family, and how it makes us who we are, whether we like it or not.

This story was recorded 2.5.18 at Brick as part of Worth Repeating's "Where I Come From" show.  Email worthrepeating@tpr.org to pitch your stories.
