I was raised without a father, so for me, starting around 1953 until my mom married my stepfather in 1960, it was Sheriff John who was my boyhood hero and role model. He had strength of character and had a reassuring voice, but he was also very gentle and I felt he really cared about us kids. In those days, television was live and he would show your photo and announce your name on the air. He knew when it was your birthday and he knew your friends. Though "low tech" by todays standards and the cartoons were in black and white, Sheriff John remains in my memories as the strong, gentle man who I wanted to grow up to be like more than anyone else. A great man.
