David was born on February 10, 1970 in Warren, Ohio, the son of Anthony and Esther L. (Obermiyer) Medved.

Self was forgotten the day he left home to defend our flag and help keep our country free when he enlisted in the US Army Reserves. He was a proud veteran who deployed to Germany, Panama and Kosovo on various humanitarian missions and infrastructure security projects. He loved his military life.
After his military discharge, he found employment in the construction trades. David was very good with his hands. He could repair and build almost anything. However, his favorite career was in a landscaping and lawn care business which he co-owned and co-operated with his sons, Williams Executive Lawn Care and Landscaping.
He was a member of Brookfield United Methodist Church; War-Dogs Motorcycle Club and former member of the Brookfield Conservation Club.
