The father of one-punch victim Daniel Christie has told a funeral service in Sydney that his son would not have wanted people to feel hate and revenge towards others.

The 18-year-old was attacked on New Year's Eve and died in hospital on the weekend.

At a public funeral for him at the Hillsong Church Convention Centre in Baulkham Hills in Sydney's north-west on Friday, Daniel's father held back tears as he spoke of his youngest son.

"Daniel would want us all to get on with our lives without adding the extra burden of carrying any negative feelings like hate and revenge.

"This is very important because it's a legacy to us all from Daniel, please do not bear this ill feelings towards others," Mr Christie said.

"It's a lesson that we all need to be retaught from time to time, so please feel nothing but love for Daniel.
