Born in Warsaw on July 20, 1965, Drew was the son of David Melton Sr. and Nancy (Biddle) Melton. He was a 1984 graduate of Warsaw Community High School and went on to work in the automotive trades.
Drew loved cars of all kinds, especially classic cars. He was a mechanic by trade and was teaching Auto Mechanics through Warsaw Schools' partnership with Global Auto. He rarely knew a stranger and was friendly to all. He was history buff, loved music of all kinds and was a proud patriot.
