I woke up this morning and when I heard the news about the passing of Adam West it was as if a part of my childhood died as well.
I know Adam West was 88 years old and lived a pretty good life until his short battle with leukemia but he’s one of those people you never expect to die. He was/is Batman to me. He was more than just a television character he was my very first hero. His portrayal of Batman even though it seems campy now gave me hope and showed me that good could overcome evil if he tried hard enough.
It probably isn’t something that’s going to happen but I really hope that everyone who’s ever Batman played after Adam West show up at his funeral wearing their Batman suits.
Rest in peace Mr. West you were more than just a television actor you were and still are my hero.
