Johnny Crawford young and now
Johnny Crawford as Mark McCain on The Rifleman and more recently

Welcome to all the folks who admire Johnny Crawford and appreciate what he has accomplished in television, film, and popular music since the 1950s.

Sadly, Johnny was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, and he was living in a memory care residence before contracting COVID-19, then pneumonia. After a temporary placement at a skilled nursing facility, he was recently moved to an excellent smaller care home close to his wife. He has his loving family supervising and his friends doing window visits for his safety.

As cruel as Alzheimer’s disease is, Johnny still has that warm smile and sparkle in his eyes, and he’s surrounded by people who love him unconditionally.

Johnny’s wife, Charlotte, and his brother, Bobby, are sharing some of the home movies and videos that Johnny collected over the years—from his cowboy days to his time conducting and singing with his dance orchestra. These very special moments have never been seen or heard by his fans. We are excited to announce that they are now available on limited edition DVDs, with more releases planned.

Here in our fundraising Store, you can now purchase the first two of these rare live music recordings and videos that celebrate Johnny’s wonderful career, along with other fundraising merchandise. You can support him while enjoying his amazing work as an actor, musician and outstanding artist.

You will be supporters, as well as customers, since your purchases will contribute to the fund for Johnny’s care. You may also discover other ways to help, enlarging the circle of admirers who are giving back in appreciation for the precious gifts Johnny has given us over the years.
