12 YEARS OF ALS NO BIG DEAL FOR MAN WHO DISLIKED WALKING AND CHIT-CHAT

12 Years Treg Charlton

CLEVELAND: Treg Charlton is a no-nonsense guy, so doctors at the KU Med Center weren’t surprised by his reaction to the grim diagnosis handed down on March 3, 2010: “What do I have to do to live one day longer than Barry Winovich?”  While the 12 year mark established by his close friend seemed daunting at times, Charlton insists his rival enjoyed the added advantage of not competing during the Covid era.

“I’m not implying he was soft. No matter how metro his wife dressed him, underneath was a brutish, hairy Serbian. But remember, he was also an unrepentant Chatty-Cathy. He couldn’t endure the first 15-minutes of a lockdown. He was a 1-man Super-Spreader. Whereas, the whole ‘worldwide pandemic–thing’ really played right into my wheelhouse.”

“When I pass, I want all of my friends to gather in a celebration of life for several days. It’s important to me that there be live music, cold Rolling Rocks and lots of laughter.”

“Let me be perfectly clear about this  – If I ever die, I would like everyone to stay at home in their bedroom and think about how they could have been a better friend to me.”

Treg Charlton’s kind-hearted big brother, Brent, was originally hoping to pawn-off a few rubber bracelets on his unsuspecting colleagues, in support of Ft. Wayne’s Walk to Defeat ALS. The team at Metal Technologies in Auburn, Indiana had bigger, better plans. Their silent auction and bake sale helped net over $1300 for the ALS Association. Thank you, MTI!
