“Glenn had great concern for his clients and established this as a strong part of our corporate culture, something we still believe in today,” said CNH Architects Principal Wayne Hilbert, who worked with the firm's founder toward the end of his architectural career.  Glenn retired in the early 1980s and lived in Colorado Springs, Colo.  He had established the CNH firm as Glenn W. Cording and Associates in 1969.

Glenn Cording was born in St. Paul on February 11, 1925, lived for several years on a farm in Osceola, Wis., and served in World War II as a Navy pilot, according to his obituary in the Echo Press in Alexandria, Minn.  He designed many county buildings, churches and service buildings for Ziegler Caterpillar.  Read the full obituary.

Glenn and his daughter, Diane, were featured as Volunteers of the Month at Project Angel Heart in December of 2015.  The organization delivers food to people with life-threatening illnesses.  He was 90 at the time.
