GREENWICH – Glenn DiSanto, age 62, passed away peacefully at home on Saturday, January 14, 2017 surrounded by his loving family and friends. He was called home to tend to his horses in the greenest of pastures. He was born on August 5, 1954 in The Bronx, NY, the son of the late Joseph and Gloria DiSanto. Glenn grew up in Carmel, NY and he graduated from SUNY Cobleskill. Glenn married the love of his life, Melanie Cole, on September 5, 1987 and they spent a wonderful 30 years together. Glenn's love of horses from a very young age led him build Summit View Farm in Greenwich to fulfill his life's passion as a Thoroughbred Horse Trainer/Breeder and so much more. We will always remember him for the love, kindness and compassion he had for his family and friends (both two and four-legged ones). Glenn was a wonderful husband, father, brother, son-in-law, brother-in-law and friend who will be greatly missed. Glenn is survived by his wife Melanie who loved him dearly; sons, Brett and Brendon; brothers, Gary (Jean) and Bruce DiSanto; sister, Diane Baran (Jon); father and mother-in-law; Jim and Maxine Cole; brother-in-law, Jeff Cole (Cathy); sisters-in-law, Laurel Shah (Ketav) and Beth Yaiser (Bill); nieces and nephews, Dawn, Daniel, David, Stephanie, Joe, Cheryl, Amanda, Keith, Lauren, Spencer, Lydia, and many dear friends. He is preceded in death by his parents. A celebration of life service and calling hours were held on Wednesday Jan. 18, 2017, at Compassionate Funeral Care in Saratoga Springs. A memorial celebration will be held on Saturday, August 5, 2017 at the Saratoga Race Track in Saratoga Springs. Additional information will be provided at a later date. We wish to thank Dr. Karen Autio and the team from Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC) for their compassion and care.
