Ricky Collins was killed in March this year when Bradley Ward, of Frecheville, pulled up in a car alongside the Sheffield dad’s van in Killamarsh, got out and stabbed him.
The 31-year-old suffered two serious stab wounds to his body and arm before he staggered down the road and collapsed.
He was taken to hospital but died just after midnight on March 30.
Ward had previously pleaded not guilty to murder, claiming he had acted in self-defence.
Hundreds of people turned out for the funeral procession of Ricky Collins in May this year.
