Along with portraying the Caped Crusader, West was also known among younger fans for voicing the hilarious Mayor of Quahog in Family Guy.
The show’s creator Seth MacFarlane paid tribute to the star on Twitter, posting a heartfelt message towards his friend.
“Family Guy has lost its mayor, and I have lost a friend,” MacFarlane wrote. “Adam West was a joy to work with, and the kind of guy you always wanted to be around.
“His positivity, good nature, and sense of fun were undeniable, and it was always a big jolt of the best kind of energy when he walked in to record the show. He knew comedy, and he knew humanity.
“I am beyond fortunate to have to privilege of working with him, and he will be proudly missed by all of us. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all that you have given, Mr. Mayor. You’re irreplaceable.”
Meanwhile, fellow Batman actors — including Ben Affleck, Val Kilmer, and Kevin Conroy — have paid tribute to West, Affleck calling him “Kind, funny and an all around great guy.”
West’s family announced West’s passing on Saturday, saying in a stamen: “Our beloved AW passed away last night. He was the greatest. We'll miss him like crazy. We know you'll miss him too.”
