Adam West Batman star in the 1960s series is dead at age 88.

Adam West, the actor defined and also constrained by his role in the 1960s series “Batman” died Friday night in Los Angeles. His agent said the actor died on the 9th of June 2017 after a short battle with leukemia at the age of 88.

West died surrounded by his family and 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.

Working as a disc jockey, West developed a dramatic and memorable voice, which he used effectively as the Caped Crusader.

“If I pick up a telephone and make an international call, the operator knows my voice immediately, as does everybody else,” he told CNN in an interview two years ago.
