He attended Wilkinsburg School District and graduated from Wilkinsburg High School. He enjoyed playing basketball and also had a poetic talent and was the author of many poems. Treay had an exceptional personality and was an extremely kind-hearted and caring young man. However, his family was his life. He loved spending time with all of them; whether it was a family cookout, traveling, or just hanging out on the porch laughing and talking with his brother Troy who was his best friend. His smile was contagious and no matter what was going on Treay always had a smile. Treay exhibited a strong work ethic. He was employed at Shadyside Hospital and one week before he was to start his new beginning as an employee at the VA hospital, and unforeseen tragedy forever changed the course of Treay's life.
