Steven Tougher, 29, married the love of his life last month and his second baby is due in just a few weeks.
Currently about 40 bunches of flowers have been placed at the McDonald’s in Campbelltown after the alleged stabbing occurred about 5.30am.
Among the items is a NSW Ambulance hat and a stethoscope.
A retired paramedic also left a letter which said ”prayer to you, brother. Your shift has ended. Rest in peace”.
NSW Health minister Ryan Park told Today said the pain and suffering his family was going through was something no one could “pretend to imagine”.
“A gentleman who was doing his job, serving his community, a gentleman who loved the paramedics, he loved his family, he was due to be a dad again in just a few months’ time and it’s absolutely heartbreaking,” Park said.
“There are recommendations to keep our paramedics safer, we’ll make sure they are carried through and implemented.
He said there is an ongoing trial of body worn-cameras for paramedics.
“We will make sure that every available support and resource is wrapped around his colleagues and is wrapped around his family and loved ones as they go through what is a very, very difficult time.”
Tougher was having a break when a 21-year-old man allegedly approached him with a knife and stabbed him repeatedly in the stomach.
His colleague was able to raise the alarm and police were there within minutes but Tougher died in hospital.
