The family of Darren Croxton said they are pleased with the manslaughter conviction but disappointed that a second man was cleared.
They said in a statement released through Sussex Police: "Darren did not deserve this tragic ending to his young life, he leaves behind a child who has to grow up without her father. We are all devastated and feel that the huge whole left in our lives by his death will never be filled."
A 17-year-old has been jailed for seven years for the manslaughter of Darren Croxton in Hailsham last year.
The teenager who cannot be named was convicted at Lewes Crown Court.
Darren Croxton, 25, died in hospital from stab wounds after being found collapsed in Bramble Drive in January last year.
