OMG I just saw Johnny Crawford died. I am so sorry for your loss. I fell it love with him as a 5 year old when he was on the Rifleman. I adored Chuck Connors too, I never missed a show when I was little. I saw he died and I went to my bookcase and found my "The Rifleman" book that I received many, many years ago at Christmas. It is beaten up from reading it so much and being a little kid but now I will treasure it more. I actually still get to see The Rifleman on TV some Saturdays. I will treasure the show more but now look at it with sadness too since both are now gone. Johnny "Mark" is at peace now, One longtime fan who will always remember him, His family has my deepest sympathy.

I just heard of this and am so very sorry to hear of Johnny's passing. I dearly remember watching him on "The Rifleman" and the rapport between he and Chuck Connors was so evident. A great show indeed and Johnny was so integral in its success. Johnny was very talented in everything he tried. Miss him and R.I.P. Johnny.

I so enjoyed reading the remembrances about Johnny. He is much loved. I never had the pleasure of meeting him, but he obviously was extremely nice his entire life. He will be missed. Thanks for sharing him with his friends and fans everywhere.

All my prayers and condolences to you and the family. I was very shocked and saddened to hear of Johnny's passing. Growing up watching Johnny on TV was always a delight. As part of so many Disney fan clubs of course Johnny as a Mouseketeer!! Growing up watching Johnny on The Rifleman was great and a pleasure. God's speed to an amazing person. Thank you for all the memories.

My condolences to Charlotte, Bobby and the entire Crawford family. My teen years were spent watching The Rifleman. And my fondest memories were listening to Johnny sing those beautiful songs: Rumors, Cindy's Birthday, Patti Ann, Donna; just to name a few. Johnny's voice was the most beautiful voice I had ever heard. So sad that he and his family had to suffer with Alzheimer's. I have lost some very dear friends and a family member from this terrible disease. May God bring you His peace and strength. Thanks for the memories.

My daughter just sent me this notification. My sympathies are with the family.... I like so many others admired first the TV show, The Rifleman, and the relationship between father and son that was written in the script weekly. Also the characters kept the memory of the mother alive in their hearts. The actors made you like them and love them and all their โ€œneighborsโ€ and โ€œfriendsโ€... As my family grew up, every Saturday that we had time, my children got to hear and see Johnny Crawford and Lucas McCain (and me again) and the stories of their home. His (Johnnyโ€™s) life was a gift to all of us, whatever he chose to do, act, ride&rope, sing, and dance to name a few of his talents....he entertained us all.

Our heartfelt sympathy to Charlotte, Bobby, Nance, and all of Johnny's family members. My Mom and I watched The Rifleman when I was a teenager. It was just the two of us and we loved the show. In 2015 my husband, Craig, and I had the thrill of meeting Johnny at the Williamsburg Western Film Festival in Williamsburg, Va. We saw him again at the same festival in 2017, and one of the committee people surprisingly arranged for us to take Johnny to dinner. He was so sweet, friendly and down to earth. I kept thinking if only my Mom could see me from Heaven having dinner with Johnny Crawford (little Mark from The Rifleman). We are heartbroken that Johnny has passed, but know that he is in Heaven and out of suffering. Rest in peace, Johnny. Thank you for the great acting, singing and comedy that you brought to us.

I grew up watching you, in the early 60โ€™s, and followed your career throughout my life. You were an inspiration to me millions of others. Thank you Johnny, for the memories and I think of you often.

In 1979, Johnny and I had become coworkers, loading semi-trailers for Roadway Trucking on the loading docks in Los Angeles. I found it ironic that this former TV actor and myself--a recent college graduate--were surprisingly cast in the same role: loading and unloading trucks. We worked the 10-hour night shift which included a "lunch break" around 3 AM. I always enjoyed our conversations and even though we were just ships in the night, it paid well and kept us both in shape. Funny thing--I had only known him from his "Rifleman" days. It wasn't until I learned of his passing did I even realize he was one of the original Mouseketeers. He left us too soon.
