Celebrity makeup artist Fanny Serrano has passed away on Tuesday night, May 10.

Maktin Miranda, who calls the popular makeup artist her father, confirmed the news on social media Wednesday, saying Fanny passed away at around 9pm on Tuesday “at the comfort of our home.”

Speaking to GMA News Online, Maktin said Fanny “suffered from a massive stroke since March 2021, and he has been recuperating since then.”

“He died peacefully in his sleep,” she added.

In her Facebook post, Maktin said, “the whole family is comforted by the fact that a lot of you are celebrating his life and paying tribute on how he has touched people’s lives.”

“We appreciate everyone’s condolences. Thank you for being with us on this difficult time,” she said.

In a separate Facebook post, Maktin paid tribute and gave thanks to Fanny.

“Thank you to this Man who nurtured, cared and loved me, the one I called Papa, this Man who taught me the true meaning of life,” she said.

“I AM PROUD TO BE YOUR DAUGHTER. Maulit man ang mundo, ikaw at ikaw pa din ang ipagdadasal ko na maging tatay ko. Curtains down, it’s your final bow, but your LEGACY lives on forever,” Maktin concluded.

According to Maktin the family initially wanted to keep things private. “Pero we saw the outpouring of love para kay Papa,” Maktin told GMA News. “We know he is a public figure at madaming gusto makiramay. Ayaw po namin tanggalin sa kanila ang karapatan na yun.” 

Details of his internment will be announced as soon as the family irons everything out.

“Sobrang nakaka-comfort sa puso na malaman my Papa served his purpose,” she added.
