About Red Baker

A.S. Red Baker, along with his wife Gertrude, founded Red Baker Propane & Butane Company in 1957 in southwest Oklahoma City on the old Gilliam place.  

Not a stranger to the propane industry, Red began back in the 1940’s working for Clanton Propane on 29th Street.  In the early 1950’s, he began hauling oilfield fuel all over the state for Consolidated Propane.  

Then, an opportunity of a lifetime began in 1953 when Bill Elkins at Consolidated Propane sold the company’s domestic propane route and a bobtail truck to Red and partner, Lee Stone, operating under Baker Propane.  

By 1957, Red bought his partner out and so began Red Baker Propane & Butane Company.  That same year, youngest son Roy became part of the family business after graduating high school.  The next year brought growth, and by the summer of 1959 the company moved to our present location on S. Sunnylane Rd.  Oldest son Ralph joined the company in 1961.  

Then, by July of 1964, the company became incorporated with the name as we know it today: Red Baker Propane, Inc. 


The Baker Family made this propane company a family tradition.  Red and Gertrude have since passed away.  Since April of 1997, Ralph is enjoying retirement after serving 35 dedicated years.  Roy continued operating the business until his death in January of 2002.  Roy dedicated 45 years of his life serving our many customers.  The family business and its traditions live on with Roy’s daughter, Karen, who followed her dad’s footsteps, joining the business in 1977. 

Tradition is a big part of our company and we take pride in treating our customers like family.  Third and Fourth generations today, Karen and son Trampas carry on the tradition that Red Baker started over 50 years ago.  We are very pleased to say we are 100% family owned and operated, delivering propane rain, sleet, snow or shine.  We are local folks, offering quality products and dependable, friendly service.  We take pride in serving our customers needs, whether it’s delivering propane gas, filling bottles, or other services provided.  We look forward to serving our customers for many more years to come and thank you for allowing us to service all your propane needs.
