William Todd Dupler Obituary
April 7, 1973 – November 11, 2020
William Todd Dupler of Newcastle, Oklahoma passed away on November 11, 2020. Todd was born on April 7, 1973, in Lawton, Oklahoma to parents William “Bill” and Janice Ann Dupler.
Todd attended school in Lawton and graduated from Lawton Eisenhower High School in 1991. He graduated from the University of Oklahoma with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing in 1996. He began his career at Deaconess Hospital in the emergency room, then at Fresenius Dialysis, and worked in the Cardiothoracic (801) ICU at Baptist Hospital. He left ICU nursing to attend Missouri State University and obtained his Master’s degree in Nurse Anesthesia, graduating in 2010. He was a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA) at the Oklahoma City VA Medical Center from 2010 until his death. Todd owned and operated Heartland Anesthesia Consultants beginning in 2011, growing his business to provide anesthesia services to multiple locations. Todd’s success in his career was due to his skill as a CRNA but also in his ability to form meaningful relationships with everyone he worked with.
Todd met the love of his life, Amanda, on August 14, 2004, and he remembered the exact outfit she was wearing the first time he saw her for 16 years. As only appropriate for two people who loved OU, their first date was OU/Texas weekend in Dallas. They were married on December 10, 2004 as Todd was a smart man and saw what an amazing woman he had so he snapped her up and sealed the deal.
Todd and Amanda created a wonderful life together, and their three sons Noah, Caleb, and Gavin, completed their family. Todd’s greatest joys in life came in time spent with his wife and sons. Todd was incredibly involved in the boys’ soccer events – he coached, he raised money for equipment, he served on the Newcastle Futbol Booster Club as a founder and Vice President. This spring, Todd spearheaded an effort by the Newcastle High School Soccer teams to provide protective gear and snacks to support his VA Anesthesia Family during the Covid-19 Pandemic. He loved watching his boys play the game they all loved. Todd, Amanda, Noah, Caleb, and Gavin took many family trips together from Hawaii to Belize to traveling in their RV to as many National Parks as possible. Their favorite is Zion National Park. Todd and Amanda have raised three incredible sons, and Todd’s legacy will be carried on by them. Todd has instilled in his sons the value of hard work, learning how to fix anything, important life skills (especially how to keep a clean car), honesty, integrity, most importantly how to love others. He did this by example. Their family dog, Zeus, adored Todd and the feeling was mutual. Todd was a loving uncle to his nephews and nieces, and his influence in their lives will carry on.
Todd was also the best friend. Many trips, Christmas/Halloween/New Year’s parties, nights spent by the firepit, OU/Texas weekends, and swim parties are among the great times spent with his many friends. Todd was a master bartender and he loved to experiment with new drink recipes (the stronger the better!) for everyone to enjoy and appreciate. As Amanda says, “So many of his friends are family.” He will be so deeply missed.
Surviving to honor Todd’s memory are his loving wife Amanda and their sons Noah, Caleb, and Gavin all of the home. He is survived by his sister, Lori (Rick) Franz of Lawton, brother-in-law Scott Condict of Moore, sister-in-law Susan Hodges of Newcastle, brother-in-law Mark (Dawn) Condict of Moore. He is also survived by his parents-in-law Wendell and Betty Condict of Moore. He is survived by numerous nieces and nephews, many friends, coworkers, and his beloved dog Zeus. Todd was preceded in death by his parents Bill and Jan Dupler.
