New Owner at Pinellas Park US19 Location with the Same Friendly Face

We are thrilled to announce that on Monday, August 9th Eric Lilly and his wife Melissa are the new franchise owners of the Ice Cold Air® Discount Auto Repair at 6401 US19N in Pinellas Park. Eric began as the manager of his Pinellas Park location in November 2020 after moving to Florida from his home state of Virginia. Eric has over 15 years in the auto industry. He met his wife while working at a local car dealership, his future Mother-in-Law was the service manager. Mom wouldn’t give him her daughter’s number but the parts guy did. During a four year stint in the Air force as a fighter plane mechanic, Eric and Melissa married and had their first child but the pull of family was too strong for Eric so he decided not to re-enlist. He returned to the dealership, first as a mechanic, then as service writer. He and Melissa had three more daughters and bought a boat to spend family time together on the water. The activity soon became their family fun hobby. After several years of seasonal Virginia fun, they started bringing the boat with them while visiting when visiting Eric’s dad in Clearwater. After a few years of commuting to Florida with the boat several times a year, they finally decided to pick up stakes, move closer to the family already here and be on the water all year round. The move to Florida fortuitously coincided with another event that would make the decision to move, in an odd way, well timed. Melissa was diagnosed with breast cancer. She is currently undergoing treatment at Moffitt Cancer & Research Institute, one of the nation’s top cancer treatment centers and enjoys an exceptional support team of family members who live here. Eric and Melissa are still making the best of their free time getting out on the water with their four girls whose ages now span from three to18. They especially enjoy water sports like wakeboarding and wake surfing. They are excited to own their own business and look forward to providing the neighborhood shop feel for which Ice Cold Air shops are known.

This is the Pinellas-based auto repair franchise’s 15th year giving away oil changes to those who donate toys.

It is an honor to help facilitate our customer’s support and making positive impacts in the lives of children in our community,” said Tina M. Denham, President of Ice Cold Air Discount Auto Repair. “Our customers and community have been very good to us for 50 years, and acting as a drop off location for Toys for Tots is an excellent way for us to give back to the community and our customers for their support.” Over the years, it is estimated that Ice Cold Air Discount Auto Repair customers have donated 25,000 toys. This year Denham says they aspire to donate over 2000 more, “our loyal customers have a proven history, and I know they are eager to support the program again this year. We are asking for even more community members to take advantage of this offer and help us meet our goal.” The toys should be of similar value, in the original packaging and unwrapped.
