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.

When I was a kid me and my sister used to watch the original Mouseketeers all the time, our favorites were Annette Funicello and Johnny Crawford, we thought of ourselves as being unofficial Mouseketeers.when I was a kid I used to watch The Rifleman and I had wished Lucas was my dad and I had a crush on Mark, he had such a wonderful smile and I loved his singing voice, to me they were the perfect family. Johnny was so gifted in so many ways, he was very charismatic and had such a wonderful smile. Johnny thank you for everything you have done, you will never be forgotten and I'm so glad I still get to watch The Rifleman and see Mark and Lucas on TV. I would love to get The Rifleman on DVDs. I would like to send my condolences and God bless to Johnny's family and friends, I want to thank Charlotte for being by Johnny's side when he went to heaven. Rest in peace Johnny and thank you. Sincerely your fan Oneta H.

Grew up watching The Rifleman which was an enjoyable show every Sunday evening at 8.30pm. Sadly, they don't make shows like that anymore.

Johnny's and Chuck's portrayal of son and dad had a profound effect on my life. That's a testament to the inspired writing and directing and their great acting. There is no greater Blessing for an artist than to know his/her work will go on entertaining and motivating others. I, like I'm sure so many others continue to watch "The Rifleman," and so does my youngest teenage son ... so Johnny's performance continues to entertain and motivate even the younger generation. RIP Johnny. This world is a lesser place without you in it.

It is with heavy sadness to hear about the passing of one of my favorite actors. To the family and friends, you have my condolences and my prayers. I was watching one of the Riflemen's episodes and Googled his name, that is how I found out about his homecoming. RIP Johnny. Remember family that Love never dies. โค

My Tribute to Johnny

The sun is setting over North Fork. The streets are empty and all is quiet at the McCain Ranch. The fire is out in the fireplace and the barn door is shut. Mark gathered up some of his favorite belongingsโ€ฆhis guitar, his trusty lasso and Paโ€™s Bible. He is saddling up Blue Boy one final time. Mark can now join former residents of North Fork and Johnny can join his parents, Chuck and former Mouseketeers and actors in taking a final bow.

And Chuck is greeting Johnny and sayingโ€ฆโ€Heaven is a new and mighty fine placeโ€...knowing it was hard for Johnny to leave everything behind. Then Chuck gently reminded Johnny there โ€œwas no lookinโ€™ back, weโ€™ve come too far.โ€ โ€œI wasnโ€™t really lookinโ€™โ€™ backโ€ Johnny explained...โ€just remembering backโ€. It was then Chuck stopped for a moment and allowed Johnny to remember, but only after a moment said ...โ€what do you say we enter Heaven from here?โ€ And Johnny replied โ€fineโ€ (From Sharpshooter)

Now Johnny with his guitar can play a round of โ€œGhost Riders in the Skyโ€ with Glen Campbell and Roy Clark.

And Johnny is riding โ€˜Two Bitsโ€™ one dark and windy day
Upon a ridge he rested as he went along his way
When all at once a mighty herd of red-eyed cows he saw
A plowinโ€™ through the ragged skies and up a cloudy draw

The Cowboys eyes were blurred, and shirts all soaked with sweat
Theyโ€™re ridinโ€™ hard to catch that herd but they ainโ€™t caught them yet
Theyโ€™ve got to ride forever in that range up in the sky
On horses snortinโ€™ fire, as they ride on, hear their cry.
Yi-pi-yi-ay Yi-pi-yi-o Ghost riders in the Sky

Ride on Johnnyโ€ฆ.ride on.โ€ฆThanks for the Memories!
