Adam West, who reinvented Batman with the 60s television show, and then reinvented himself with the help of ‘Family Guy’ passed away Friday night, losing his battle with leukemia, according to Variety.

“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.

West ended his acting career with 193 credits to his name. He was on the ‘Family Guy’ for 17 years and ‘Batman’ ran from 1966 to 1968 with 120 episodes.

Rest in peace Mister West, your pop culture legacy will burn bright.
