The Bat-signal will be seen in Los Angeles on Thursday night in honor of "Batman" actor Adam West, who died June 9 at age 88.

The event is shaping up to be a fitting tribute to a man beloved by many.

The live-action "Batman" show, starring West along with Burt Ward as his sidekick Robin and a collection of colorful villains, was inspired by a long-running comic book series.

For most fans, actor Adam West will best be remembered for his title role in the campy 1960s Batman series. Tonight, June 15, the star and his legacy will be honored by the city of Los Angeles, according to a press release from DC Comics.

In a statement, acting Navy Secretary Sean Stackley said, "We are all deeply saddened by the tragic loss of our fellow shipmates". The Navy's 7th Fleet said searchers found the bodies Sunday morning Japan time after the ship returned to its base in Japan .

West memorably provided the voice for Quahog's eccentric Mayor West for more than 100 episodes on the hit show since 2000, self-effacingly playing a rather satirised version of himself for the purposes of comedy. Any donations made helps benefit both St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, as well as an Idaho-based charity, Camp Rainbow Gold, which was designed for children who have been diagnosed with cancer and their families.
