In a message to the police, John Ruszczyk said "you have stolen our daughter and ripped her from our arms".
Another attendee, Rosie McGowan, said Ms Damond, a qualified vet who was to marry this month, would have asked those at the memorial "why are you guys being so serious?". He and Justine Ruszczyk - who'd already begun using his last name socially and professionally - were due to get married Thursday.
A few of the ways family and friends from near and far described Justine Damond Friday night during a public memorial service at Lake Harriet in Minneapolis.
"We should be walking down the street smiling and laughing", he said.
An Australian flag stood prominently on the stage next to a large colour photo of Damond bordered in pink and white flowers.
Ms Damond had called 911 to report a woman being raped close to her apartment block shortly before she was shot and killed.
Her fiance, Don Damond, who shared a sample of Justine's writing with the crowd said he had, "immense gratitude for being the one she chose".
The invitation promises to honour her spirit, and features her beaming smile under the sub-heading "move from fear and survival to fascination and creation".
A judge approved a search warrant for investigators to examine the smartphones of two Minneapolis police officers in the shooting.
The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension is investigating the shooting.
The application says the information "may more clearly define" the officers' actions before and after 40-year-old Justine Damond (DAY'-mund) was killed on July 15.
Lawyers for the killer police officer, Noor, 36, claim he felt he was being ambushed when he pulled the trigger and shot Ms Damond.
Fiance Don Damond is comforted by family and friends at the service.
His partner, Officer Matthew Harrity, told detectives a noise startled Noor as Damond approached their cruiser. The memorial will end with a silent walk around Lake Harriet.
'Justine, thankyou for your attractive light that still SHINES on us all, ' one thoughtful sign read. Noor shot through the open driver-side window from the passenger seat and fatally struck the Australian bride-to-be.
Her family set up the Justine Damond Social Justice Fund to support causes important to her, including those promoting equal treatment for all.
