John was my favorite teacher while at Cal Poly, maybe of my entire college career. I learned so much about engineering and people and just life. What a great, dry sense of humor he had. I remember talking with him some years after graduation about working on a remodel of a school that he designed way before he started teaching. How weird is that? I remember seeing his name on the old drawings and it really hit me of what a small world we live in.

So sorry to hear of the passing of Mr. Edmisten. He was my favorite Architectural Engineering Professor! He loved wood - I was at Cal Poly from 1984 to 1988 and have great memories of him in my timber design classes. I now am a practicing Structural Engineer in San Juan Capistrano, CA working mostly in timber/wood design. My condolences to Johns family, but he will be fondly remembered by MANY students/engineers that encountered him.
With Love, Eric.
