Johnny, you have been a valuable part of my life, since I was a child watching The Rifleman. Mark McCain is one of the most loved tv characters of all time. You brought him to life. Thank you for all those wonderful memories. You are loved. God bless you & your family.

Really enjoying Johnnyโ€™s CD & DVDs๐Ÿ˜€ - amazing pitch in his singing voice - love that 1920s era music, am reminded of Wild Honey Pie, also to a lesser extent, Good Night, that Paul did on Side 4 of the Beatlesโ€™ White Album - & as a rodeo cowboy? Wow - amazing - those are ornery beasts to stay up on, but stay up he did, & if he got thrown he bounced right back up & did it again - many thanks to this great man, & to Charlotte & his caretakers

Just recieved my autographed picture of Johnny. Will treasure it. Just want him to know he is loved and the joy he gives us all through his music and acting lives on. I introduced my 20 something niece to The Rifleman and she loves him as much as I do. Prayers and love to all.

Johnny, I have been a fan of yours since you starred in the popular series The Rifleman, and was also a member of your fan club. I have a dear sister who now has Alzheimers.

Johnny was one of my first influences in Western drama. I always was thrilled at the idea of growing up on a ranch with horses in the dusty west. Johnny brought that to the tele every Sat. morning. Thank you Johnny and be well.

Ah yes, those early years of television. By the time of The Rifleman we had grown from our initial 12" screen to a whopping 17", although still black and white. I had forgotten The Rifleman until I encountered some episodes on American Movie Classics. Looking at those programs now I am impressed at the natural acting of Chuck Connors and Johnny Crawford. They could have easily been real-life father and son. I am saddened to hear of Johnny acquiring Alzheimer's, something all too many of us encounter as we progress through our senior years. Nothing, however, can erase our life accomplishments, which for Johnny were so many, from one of the original Mouseketeers to child actor to rodeo rider to band leader. And how wonderful that he married his high-school sweetheart. Please thank Johnny for the many hours of enjoyment The Rifleman has provided me. Lucas and Mark McCain will live on long after all of us have departed this fair planet.

Having been raised in Southern California, I was privledged to have an uncle who worked for Filmways. When I was about 6 or 7 he took me to a rodeo by and for film cowboys and wranglers. I was impressed with a young man, who sat me on his horse! Later years reruns of The Rifleman showed me it was Johnny Crawford! My prayers and thanks go to Johnny and the family and friends! God Bless!

I enjoy watching the relationship between Johnny's character with his father. I'm on the Alzheimer's journey with my mom. I'm grateful that she knows her immediate family on most days. Susan

I recently retired and have the opportunity to watch The Rifleman as I did as a child. Back then I followed the story line and waited for the shootout. What I see now is the messages in the plot and how great an actor Mr. Crawford was in that show. Way beyond his years....best compliment I can offer....he never seemed to be acting. The other thing I noticed is how well he could ride a horse. Lost art, for sure...even with adult actors now. We have first hand experience with Alzheimer's and used the awful situation to "give back"...one of the few blessings available with that disease. We send prayers and love to Mr. Crawford and his family. Glad this website is available. Thanks for being a wonderful part of our lives. Jon and Glenda

After reading all the entries on this page, I'm finding it difficult to think of something that hasn't already been said. Please brace yourselves for repetition! Mr. Crawford, Some of my earliest TV memories were of you as Mark McCain with Chuck Connors. I did not know about your 'teen idol' years recording music until I was an adult. I DID know of your orchestra and have enjoyed hearing you perform. I also appreciate songs from the 20s, 30s and 40s and have performed many times (one of the instruments I play is the banjo ukulele) using these early songs. Today I was watching some of your orchestral performances on Youtube and it occurred to me that I might contact you. Finding your web page, I discovered your - forgetfulness - which I can relate to, having suffered a brain injury in the early 80s. Anyway, it is my hope that you maintain as much memory as you can. I have appreciated your work, both with acting and with music, and I wanted to contact you and tell you so. Thank you!

As a big Rifleman fan (was back then, still am today), two of my favorite lines of Johnnyโ€™s are from early episodes โ€œseems like the Lordโ€™s DEAD SET against us havin our own placeโ€ after their house burns down - also, โ€œWhiskey make ya work better? Supper willโ€ in Paul Fixโ€™s 1st show as Micah The authenticity of the show remains to this day imo - it wasnโ€™t just acting for Johnny, he lived it - expert rider, became a full fledged rodeo cowboy - was considered one of the best ropers around - few have had the career Johnny has had

Hello Mr. Crawford! Like so many others, I grew up watching The Rifleman on TV and admiring the bond you shared with Chuck Connors. I read your Wikipedia biography and am glad to know you are still with us. Through your acting and music, you have contributed to the happiness of so many - a wonderful gift. I want to take this opportunity to thank you for generously working hard to bring quality family television to us for many years. Although many years have passed since those television days, your dedication and terrific presence is always remembered and appreciated. I pray you stay strong and enjoy many more years of retirement and happiness. God Bless you and Mrs. Connors always.

Dear Mr. Crawford, I hope you will be Able to get this message. From a kid who watched a kid on TV, you became my favorite kid actor and you still are my favorite today. I showed my son David your picture and let him know about โ€œThe Riflemanโ€ growing up. I pray that you know Jesus as your Lord Savior. It is so important that we spend eternity with the one who created us. I Loved you back then Mr. Crawford, and I still today. You will always be my favorite. I hope one day I will be able to meet you in heaven. God Bless you, Dolores Winters

I just ordered the 60th Anniversary boxed set. I decided it was a necessity. I am fine physically but I live alone and my cat recently died so I'm feeling ragged and frayed emotionally. I don't want to take meds to deal with being depressed. I need to see good triumph over evil. A good looking man with his shirt off doesn't hurt either! This set is better than a 5 quart bucket of ice cream. By the way, this is not an advertisement. I am sharing my cure for emotional distress. Love and hugs to you, Johnny. It's a good thing your parents met and fell in love because if they hadn't we wouldn't have you!

Crazy that I love a show that went off the air before I was born, but I do! I know I'm just one of the faceless many that does this, but please give Johnny my heartfelt best wishes. It's good that he loves music, because that has been shown to help tremendously with Alzheimer's patients. I know the love of fans means nothing next to the love of family, but it seems like Johnny is covered in both. God bless you, Johnny!
