Adam West has passed away at the age of 88. To many Adam West is known as the caped crusader from the campy 60’s TV show Batman. Others know him as Mayor West on “Family Guy.” Adam West had a long career spanning 7 decades first appearing in Paul Newman’s The Young Philadelphians (1959). He had a short battle with leukemia and died peacefully surrounded by his family and is survived by his wife Marcelle, six children, five grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. “Our dad always saw himself as The Bright Knight and aspired to make a positive impact on his fans’ lives. He was and always will be our hero,” his family said in a statement.
