Email

WILLMAR -- Dr. Robert V. Hodapp had a way of staying calm, no matter how intense the situation.

"He was always even-tempered. Ev-en if he got upset, he didn't show it very much," recalled Dr. James Tiede, one of Hod-app's former colleagues. Hodapp, a longtime pediatrician and former Willmar mayor, died Tuesday at his home in Spicer. He was one day short of his 87th birthday.
