Erasmo Zapata


erasmo-zapata-2012 ERASMO ZAPATA—Business brought him from Minnesota to Texas 14 years ago. But forget trading in a parka for flip flops; he found the bigger transition to be going from small-town Barnesville to big-city Dallas. “I’d always lived in the country,” he said. “but the city has more advantages, more opportunities. I’m used to it now.” Erasmo is self-employed, running a company that pro-vides sprinklers, irrigation and drainage. He attended a couple of colleges in Minnesota put left before finishing to come south. He’s now studying at Northwood and planning to follow that with law school. Erasmo has lived in Duncanville for three years. He and wife Mary met at gym about nine years ago. Son Erasmo Jr. is 14 years old, and they have a daughter on the way.
