Ward, who portrayed Robin opposite West’s Batman in the 1960's series about the Caped Crusader, is opening up about his former co-star, who died over the weekend after a short battle with leukemia.

West was 88.

Ward said that he was stunned to learn the severity of his friend's condition.

Ward is now 71. He and his wife, Tracy, run the Gentle Giants Dog Rescue out of their home in Norco, Calif.
