Suzy Friton Obituary – Death : Suzy Friton has died. Friton passed away on Thursday, 9th of September, 2021 after a long and hard- fought battle against cancer.

Friton was the UFC’s makeup artist since October 2006, and for nearly 15 years was a key player behind the scenes in ensuring the athletes and other on-air personalities for a broadcast were camera-ready for the world to see. This is such a sad time for the family, friends and loved ones Friton has left behind. We commensurate with the bereaved at a time like this. He is survived by the beautiful family and friends he left behind.

Cause of death

Friton had earlier been diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer which she fought and won. However, in March 2020, she was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer and her symptoms deteriorated over the couple of months. She finally gave the bow after the hard fought battle on Thursday, 9th of September.

She worked with numerous fighters in the industry over the course of her career and her death has left in its wake a sad group friends and loved ones. Even though she had openely spoken about her health in an interview early this year, her death is still a shock to all who knew her, family, friends and colleagues.

“Gone way too soon @suzesuzeq I can’t even think about you without seeing that smile. The last time I saw you I remember you being happy and just as beautiful. That’s the way I choose to remember you forever, always being a light to everyone around you. Thanks for putting up with all my harassment over the years, thank you for doing Jessie‘s make up and making her look so beautiful for all those weigh in ceremonies and fight nights. We love you, always will. @UFC behind the curtains will never be the same without you, truly an original. 🙏🏾❤️ #cancersucks”

“I’m going to leave this post here, and hopefully, one day, my grandkids find this and ask me who this woman was. It’ll be nice telling the kids stories about trying to act tough in front of my opponents while getting blush and lipgloss applied to my face. I’ll get a chance to tell a story about a woman who made everyone smile that she came across. A woman who was the reflection of love, kindness and gratefulness until the very end”.

“@suzesuzeq Suze Friton was a sweet soul that was always there to cheer up hangry fighters with her love and open heart to listen to your struggles and leave you feeling better. This woman knew my whole story and had witnessed the rise and fall of a mans faith in the search for spiritual truth. Suze was pure positive energy and will be remembered for how brave and courageous she was going into the fight with cancer. Prayers out to her loved ones 🙏🏼💯”

“One very early morning in 2005, I walked into the Fox Studios with Billy Ray Smith ready for a long day hosting College Football on FSN, I’m not a morning person, BR definitely is, as we entered, there was a beautiful women sitting criss cross applesauce, she was our new makeup artist, her greeting and smile prompted me to say “I’ll go first BR” little did I know that Suzy Friton would become my “little sister” an extremely rare breed of true friend! Anyone who knew Suzy knows how giving and caring she was, always putting everyone and everything ahead of her own world. She not only loved me, she loved my family, she even volunteered to babysit our kids. Kiarra Goldberg got a trip to makeup heaven and their relationship built massively from there. Suzy always called Kole little Koley and loved telling everyone about the time he was calling for her at the house, “Shoozy, Shoozy Shoozy, SUSAN, SUSAN” (he was little) D’Marco Farr, thank you for bringing Suzy Q into our lives, she will never be forgotten. Love You Little Sister!”

“This is my friend Suzy Friton aka the best makeup artist 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼
I was just with her 2 1/2 weeks ago in Las Vegas. We talked and talked the entire night. Then the next morning we sat outside her front porch for a couple hours and we talked while she pointed out each Hummingbird by their name that flew by. I also hung up honey water feeders for her. I then held her hand and I said a prayer for her. And she was so happy and smiled so big when I gave her a FAITH FIGHTER SHIRT 🎈💕
Then our amazing friend Janira Janira Gaxiola Kremets stopped by and we talked and shared stories. Suzy had stage 4 breast cancer….I love you so much Suzy! I got the call early this morning so I got on my knees and prayed. Rest In Peace and keep showering all of us with your amazing happy spirit…..your friend, jason-“
