Adam West, a actor behind one of a many dear and fast renditions of Batman, died Friday night during a age of 88. For most of a 1960s, West donned a black facade of a caped crusader, personification a purpose as a plucky, courageous favourite for television.

“Adam West upheld divided peacefully final night after a brief though dauntless conflict with leukemia,” his family writes in a Facebook post. “He was a dear father, husband, grandfather, and great-grandfather. There are no difference to report how most we’ll skip him.”
