The signal was activated just after 9:00pm loal time by mayor Eric Garcetti and Police Chief Charlie Beck. A fitting tribute for a acting legend.
The signal silhouette appeared on the City Hall tower cheered on by hundreds of fans in costumes.
West has been in dozens of roles since the iconic Bat man tv series but has most recently been the voce of the nutty Mayor Adam West in the long running Family Guy television series. A tribute episode was aired on the cartoon on Sunday.
“Family Guy has lost its mayor, and I have lost a friend.”
“I am beyond fortunate to have had the privilege of working with him, and he will be profoundly missed by all of us.”
The creator of the show Seth Macfarlane said.
Fans have taken to social media to voice their respect for the actor and say in their own words what Adam West and his work has done for them.
The TV icon has crafted a legacy that will last long into the future and continue to bring joy and inspire people for generations to come.
