Jim and Ellen May moved to Brookshire community January, 2019.  After a 35 year military career we moved from our home in NE Pennsylvania in order to be closer to our youngest grandchildren.  We are parents of four children, grandparents to 12 grandchildren and 1 great grandchild.   

Our career includes 8 years as a trumpeter in the US Marine Band, Washington, DC . I then attended seminary, after which I served as a pastor for four years.   In 1982 I became an Army Chaplain and served in various locations, including as the senior Army Chaplain at Arlington National Cemetery.  Our last assignment was in Heidelberg, Germany, where I was responsible for the oversight of all the Army Installation chapels in Europe.  I retired as an Army Colonel in 2008 after 26 years as a chaplain.   

I earned a doctorate degree in Pastoral Counseling from Westminster Theological Seminary, as well as an honorary doctorate from Baptist Bible Seminary.  I also received a Master of Strategic Studies from the US Army War College, Carlisle, PA.  

In retirement  we spend much time with family.  I teach Sunday School and do pulpit supply when needed.  I have travelled to Africa on six occasions to teach seminary students in Zambia, Cameroon, and Benin.    

Brookshire Community has proven to be the ideal retirement spot for the Mays,  and we thank the Lord for leading us to our new home.

Iggy Taylor

Term started 7/1/2016. Ends July 2022

With Joe Biden as a neighbor and Valerie Bertinelli down the street I grew up in the blue-collar town of Claymont DE. I always had a passion for music writing my first song when I was eight and forming my first rock band when I was thirteen.  At the age of fourteen I started my first job as a dishwasher. It was then I would also meet my future wife Linda. We married after graduating high school. Music was put on hold as I quickly moved up the corporate ladder.  In 1974  I was offered a position with The Marriott Corporation, which lasted twenty-two years. Linda and I moved to Northern Virginia where we raised our three children, one boy and two girls. I held numerous leadership and creative positions within Marriott and  was on the development team to develop a new fast food concept called Roy Rogers.  In 1995 I became a franchisee for Burger King and later on Popeye's. I operated a total of seven restaurants until my retirement in 2011. 

I really feel God delivered Linda and I to Brookshire and feel blessed every day I wake up and step outside my front door. It truly is one big family. There is not a day goes by that I don’t witness the generosity, compassion and love that Brookshire residents have.

Gary Paporello


Term starts July 2020

I was born in Jersey City and grew up in Bergenfield, NJ. After graduating from Bergenfield High School, I attended Bergen Community College while working various jobs. At age 20 I landed an entry level  position with the American Broadcasting Company (ABC-TV) and ultimately learned as I earned eventually becoming a broadcast and audio engineer. Over the course of 46 years I worked for ABC Sports, ABC News, and Good Morning America receiving four Emmy nominations and winning twice. As part of the GMA crew covering the September 11 attacks, I am also a recipient of a George Foster Peabody Award. In addition to my experience in broadcasting, I freelanced in the film industry working in sound, lighting, and set construction. Throughout the years, I maintained a small audio business from home setting up and mixing live productions for schools, churches, and even here in Brookshire. 

Outside of work, I am an Eagle Scout and was an Assistant Scout Master for our son’s troop. I coached soccer, basketball, and baseball. Having always been physically active, I still especially enjoy kayaking, swimming, running, and bicycling. I have even completed several triathlons. Raising our family near a lake in NJ, I served on the Lake Lenape Association Board of Trustees there for 20 years and was responsible for the lake dam maintenance and renovation project during my entire time on the board. 

Saving the best for last, I have been married to my wife Teresa for 35 years and have 2 wonderful children. Our daughter and her husband are both 4th grade teachers in the Pequea Valley School  system here in the Lancaster area. Our son serves in the United States Coast Guard and is currently based in New Orleans, LA. After moving to Brookshire in 2013, Teresa spent 6 years on the HOA board and eventually passed the baton to me. Wherever we’ve lived, we have always felt that service to our community is extremely important and I hope that I too can help to make a positive contribution to our Brookshire neighborhood.
