Was so sorry to hear if Johnnyโ€™s passing. I was so lucky to meet him a couple of years ago. He had such a great personality and I enjoyed talking with him about his acting. My prayers are with him and his family๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป

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.

So sorry to hear of Johnny's passing. My deepest condolences to his wife and family and all who loved him. He will be missed by all those who enjoyed his talent and shared their growing up years with him. May he Rest In Peace.

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!!

As I don't follow much of the news anymore, & the passing of older actors is increasingly ignored (esp. those from the b/w era). I was though deeply saddened to learn of the untimely passing of Mr. Crawford as displayed recently on "ME=TV". Though I never had the honor of meeting him, a true pioneer of the classic-tv era; Like so many, I "knew" really only through theirs on-screen roles. My friends now are most "TV-ones". After childhood (I was born in '60); I typically worked & served in the military as a career. After I retired, having much more free time/ freedom, I began to watch/ re-watch most of the "TV" I grew-up with. I was able eventually/ finally to see "as-aired" complete runs of entire series. Now I've seen at least a half dozen complete 'runs' of "The Rifleman" - and still enjoy each episode (unlike some other series) I read about, after wondering about the interactions between Mr. Crawford as a boy & Mr. Conners. It was also interesting to me, that like me, they were both Army Vets. My deepest condolences to John's family - he was obvious a great "kid' & a fine man. The... Read more

The watchers/ fans of his work miss him, as well as, all of the other's we've lost over the many years.. They all now live-on in the roles they made famous

I have followed Johnny's career since I was 8 years old watching The Rifleman. As great as that was, I loved his music more. His teenage recordings of Rumors, Proud, Cindy's Birthday were so meaningful to me. His voice was so clear and strong even at his young age. I had the opportunity to meet Johnny three times at different venues later in his life and it was always such a thrill for me. He meant more to me than I can express. My sympathy goes out to his family and close friends and to all his fans who loved him.

Johnny and I share two passions, the cowboy life and big band music and we were both lucky enough to explore both in our lifetimes. Being just a few years younger then Johnny, I remember him when he started on the Mickey Mouse Club. He was indeed an excellent actor. I still watch the Rifleman every day on TV! My mother recently passed away after several years of the same illness so I can relate first hand how difficult it is watching someone you love and admire wasting away mentally. I truly sympathize with the family and offer my deepest heartfelt condolences. Johnny was lucky to have support through those difficult final years. May God welcome his soul!
