A moment of silence was held in honor of George Nasuti during Wednesday night's girl's basketball game.

The Woonsocket High School Athletic Director passed away following a fall where he hit his head while refereeing a youth basketball game in Burrillville on Friday night. 

"He was also a good guy and he just always pushed us to make us better," said Marcus Gelinas, student.

"I can say compared to anybody in Woonsocket he had the most love for the city," said Edwin Jones, Class of 2011.

Girls basketball coach Shawn Harris had Nasuti as a principal, coach and boss.

"I got to meet him in all different aspects, all personalities and not one of them was bad, all of them were good," said Harris.
