The family of George Nasuti, a beloved Woonsocket Athletic Director, coach, father, friend and mentor, have planned a memorial service in his honor for the public to pay tribute to his life.

Nasuti died on Tuesday after suffering injuries from a fall while refereeing a basketball game in Burrilliville last Friday.

In a statement, the family said funeral services for Nasuti will be private and for family only. But in recognition of the overwhelming outpouring of love and concern from the community, they have planned a celebration of his life for Sat., March 1 at Woonsocket High School. The exact time is to be determined.

"Coach’s family would like everyone to know that the outpouring of support has been both humbling and amazing to see and feel.  They appreciate the support and kind words that everyone has had to say about George and are now beginning to grasp the immense impact he had on so many lives," the statement read.

In lieu of flowers the family asks that you make donations to the newly created GEORGE NASUTI SCHOLARSHIP FUND.  Donations can be mailed to: Blackstone River Federal Credit Union, 10 Monument Square, Woonsocket, RI 02895.

The City of Woonsocket has lost one of it's finest native sons and devoted member of the community. George Nasuti is the kind of man that every young boy should aspire to be like. Our family had the honor to be the Nasuti's neighbors and friends in North Smithfield and got to observe and admire what a wonderful father and husband he truly was. We look forward to attending the public service for George and totally respect Carol, Chris and Seans desire to keep the family services private. Our thought, prayers and love go out to the Nasuti family. God Bless.

It's tragic that Mr. Nasuti passed away. He meant so much for the local community and will never be replaced.
