Cr McDonald said the tragedy had left the community in shock.
"It was just gut-wrenching on Saturday," he said.
"I know it's a similar feeling for many in the community.
Mr Window owned his own electrical business, which he ran with his wife Helen.
He leaves behind two children, Liam and Emma.
"He was a very committed family man, and worked very hard during the week to earn what time off he had," Cr McDonald said.
"He did a lot of work for us over the years."
