I've just began watching Johnny's fine performances in "The Rifleman" & am blown away by his talent at such a young age. I extend my sincere condolences to his family & I thank you for doing everything possible in keeping his memory alive. God Bless!

Just watched the episode when Lucas was trying to catch a gambling cheat and Mark was mad at his dad for gambling in the saloon every night. Love the show, it was before my time but I grew up watching it.

OMG, I had no idea Johnny Crawford was a veteran! I grew up on The Rifleman, and bore a huge crush on Johnny. And I see from the pictures that Johnny cut a really trim, handsome picture in those uniforms. You know he might not be beside you, but keep in mind they're not really gone, so long as you remember.

I just now found out he passed last year. So sad to hear heโ€™s gone. I watched the Rifleman because of Johnny. He was a couple of years older than me. I had some of his 45 rpm records. My favorite was โ€œCindyโ€™s Birthdayโ€. Years later, I played it for my friend, Cindy, and she plays it every year on her birthday. She now watches the reruns and loves him as much as I did.

I was very sorry to hear of Johnny's passing last year. I felt that I had a special connection with the show. In 1957 I was 14 years old and attended a screening of new TV show "pilot" episodes with my Mom. It was held in a studio in New York City and we got to watch and review a number of shows for possible production. I saw The Rifleman and instantly knew that this show would be a hot and it would be well received by both adults and kids (like me). Of course I voted for it and was really happy when it went on the air. I like to feel (and it's true) that I had a hand (a little kid's hand) in getting The Rifleman with Johnny Crawford and Chuck Connors on the air. I still watch reruns daily and feel that there are wonderful moral messages to kids (and adults) contained in those episodes. We NEED these kinds of shows today. R.I.P. and God Bless you, Johnny.

Like others, I just found out about Johnny's passing, and was very saddened. Continued thoughts , and prayers for his family, and friends. My Mom passed from Alzheimer's, such a cruel disease. We cared for her, and watched her for 13 years as she slipped away. I grew up with the Rifleman, it was one of my favorite shows. So many of us wanted to be Johnny, be his friend, and or be on the set with him. Playing Chuck Connor's son, what an honor, Chuck so accomplished, a great pair. Here i am much later in life, and i find myself once again watching the Rifleman, love the show. I find the older i get, the more i am drawn to it. Thank you for putting together such a beautiful tribute, and i look forward to spending some time looking at everything. Wishing you all the best, blessings Mike

Thank you for sharing his Celebration of Life with us fans. It is wonderful that, through this, I have gotten to know this talented and decent man better. Have been a fan of his since I was 5 years old and first saw him on the Rifleman, and since seen many of his other performances. As a avid fan of 20's and 30's dance music I was delighted to learn years ago about his orchestra, but never had the opportunity to attend performances. However, I just bought one of his cds, and I will always treasure it. God bless Johnny! I know he is well again and ropin'; and ridin' in the vast Heaven. My condolences to his family and friends; may memories bring you all comfort.

Sooooooo sad to hear of Johnnyโ€™s passing. I just found out this week. I donโ€™t know how I missed it last year. I watch the Rifleman everyday. He was so talented and genuine. After looking at all the pictures on website I see how he maintained that beautiful smile till the end. I am much too familiar with Alzheimerโ€™s as my mom suffered from the disease. I hope he is reunited with his television dad and riding his horse in heaven. I certainly did not know him personally, however, Iโ€™m sure it was a pleasure to know him personally. May he Rest In Peace.

I found out today that the late great Johnny Crawford sadly passed away last year. I am very grateful that there is a place where I can pay my respects and thanks. Johnny was a celebrity guest at the Miss Los Angeles County pageant in Inglewood, CA in 1968 where I was crowned the winner. He was so gracious and kind to me. I'll never forget how he asked questions about myself, really seeming to be interested. He was a big star by then and I was too star struck to have a normal conversation. I was 17 years old and I've been in love with him ever since and am heartbroken that he is gone. He will never be forgotten.

So sad to hear about Johnny. Hard to think of him as being an older man when he looks so young on his TV shows. Rifleman was one of the best shows made. His brother Robert is in this Christmas Parade with Johnny in 1960 - https://www.jerrymathers.com/tag/barbara-billingsley/page/2/

I was so sorry to hear about the passing of Johnny Crawford. Iโ€™ve been a fan of the Rifleman show since I was a kid. Only within the last few years with reruns on cable have I been able to see all of the episodes, which Iโ€™ve now seen over three times. My condolences to the Crawford family and to all who loved him.
