Adam West was an iconic actor most known for his role in the television series Batman. Other screen and stage credits include his work as Mayor Adam West in Family Guy

Drafted into the Army in the early 1950s, he spent the next two years starting military television stations, first at San Luis Obispo, California, then at Fort Monmouth, New Jersey.

There is a Hawaii connection. Getting out of the Army, he joined a childhood and college buddy, Carl Hebenstreit, who was starring in the kiddie program “The Kini Popo Show” in Hawaii. Adam would eventually replace Carl but not the other star, Peaches the Chimp.

Adam West passed away Friday evening after a brief battle with leukemia. The actor was 88.
