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.

Often we do not realize how much people touch our lives. Johnny Crawford on the Rifleman has touched me and my daughter for years and since we heard about his passing, we have been singing "Cindy's Birthday." We didn't know him, but that smile and his performances have brought us joy since we found him TV. We are sorry to see him go and may he rest in peace.

Johnny was my first celebrity crush at age ten. I joined his fan club and still have the small photos they sent me. I was also a horse crazy girl and I loved Johnny because he was a good horseman too. I rediscovered Johnny several years ago on Facebook. I was delighted he was reaching out to his fans in social media. I was very intrigued that he created the Johnny Crawford Orchestra. He looked so handsome in his top hat and tuxedo. I had hoped to attend a concert in Los Angeles. I think he was just starting to have early signs of Alzheimersโ€™s disease and had stopped doing the concerts. My cousin died at age 68 from early onset Alzheimerโ€™s. My heart sank when I learned Johnny had this terrible disease. I just turned 70 and learning of Johnnyโ€™s passing just a few days before, made it particularly sad news for me. The Rifleman was a classic television show and will continue to entertain new generations around the world. My condolences to Charlotte and the entire Crawford family.

We love Johnny here. It was important to a child either neglected or even abused to believe there were relationships out there that were healthy, respectful and full of love, even if they were fiction and of another era. The relationship portrayed on The Rifleman will always be a solid example of how a father-son relationship should be. All these years later and yet our eyes still moisten at the poignant episodes from 60 years ago. Johnny played the role of Mark McCain with such natural innocence that I was never once envious or jealous. Requiescat in Pace Pardner.

My deepest condolences to the family of Johnny Crawford. As a child I grew up watching both The Mouseketeers and The Rifleman series. I am 2 years younger than Mark and admired all his talents. I myself had a musical career. So sorry for your loss, but know it is Heaven's gain. Cordially yours, Lonny Welch

I think of Johnny singing and riding with his westerns family. The first time I heard him sing I was a little girl and he sang on the Rifleman the song I think was evergreen. I sad heโ€™s gone but he isnโ€™t hurting anymore. My prayers go to his family and friends. God bless

I discover the Rifleman on prime! I fell in love with little Johnny! He was a fantastic child actor. The viewers can see and feel the heart of gold that he has. In my opinion the best child actor in history. I love to watch with my son the episodes. Seen on YouTube interviews of him we can see that he so polite and full of values. All our prayers to the family and rest in peace Johnny. We love you. P.S Bobby his very good to perfect brothers!!
