50 Years of Service

Nicholson Family - 2007

As a family-owned and operated company, Country Gas of Cortez is the newest of four propane companies. The first company was opened in Gallup, New Mexico (Gallup Propane Service) in 1971 by Don Nicholson who is lovingly remembered as a wise Christian businessman who had a passion for serving others through his work (pictured center, middle row). 

Now three generations later, his legacy continues.

Meet the Gallup Propane Family

Being a family-owned and operated business doesn’t always mean that everyone is related by blood, but it does mean that everyone is treated like family – including our customers.
