Cooper as he was known was my grandfather. He worked in the early film industry in Hollywood. Cooper worked for Hal Roach Studios, then for MGM studios where he worked on lighting. Cooper worked on many of the great movies of the 1930's, 1940's and 1950's including Casablanca, Gone With the Wind, and Wizard of Oz.

God bless my "cowpop" as I used us call him as a toddler. I miss him and wish I had been given a chance to really know him. He died when I was still very young.
