You remember him, we kept his kid for him "little John". 
His kid J grown up and reflects strong"...

OK... "Here's where it gets tricky", as Starship says! LOL
I gathered the information regarding "Ivan" aka "Bucky" from VERY reliable sources.
 John "Partee" Friedman and Holly Feeney raised Sandra Good's son... Ivan Pugh.
Ivan calls Holly "mom".
"That's a fact Jack!"

I'm sharing this information, as a courtesy, to all TLB enthusiasts.
I can't PROVE it to you here... and if you don't believe me...
that's totally cool... I understand.
The photo is labeled really funky by Friedman (kinda inaccurate)... and he gives all his kids really weird nicknames like "Bucky" and "Hucky". 
In fact... thay all have like 10 names... that's how artists are.
It's confusing as all shit.
Just take my word for it... that's the dude... Ivan Pugh... Sandra Good's son.

The Whole Story.
John "Partee" Friedman, Self Portrait.

“John” was born Johnny Irwin Friedman. He was a friend of Charlie’s for many years, although it hasn’t been disclosed when or where they met. John was a noted artist in the Santa Rosa Art Community and traveled the world. He married in the early 1960’s to a lady by the name of Inga, had 3 children with he,r but she was killed in a traffic accident in San Francisco in the mid 60’s. Soon after, he met and married a lady named Holly. It was about this time that he changed his name to “Partee”. It is known he also had a partner by the name of Windy with whom he had more children (according to a website which is no longer active).  John lived a mostly communal lifestyle.

One of his children (John Jr.) was taken into custody during the Spahn Ranch Raid of August 16, 1969. (See Arrest Sheet List for "detained children" above).  Charlie and family used to babysit "Little John" at the ranch. (See Manson's letter above).

Friedman married Holly Feeney in 1964 ...they lived in the San Francisco area.  They raised Ivan Pugh when Sandy went to prison.

Age: 74 years, Partee passed away in Santa Rosa, CA on September 30, 2008. Dear father of Bianca Kolonusz-Partee (Thomas), JJ Friedman, Tripper Friedman, Michael Friedman, Sunnie Friedman and Bucky Pugh (Caterina). Partee is also survived by his brother, Stan Friedman (Mary) and their family as well as many many wonderful friends here and around the world. Partee was born in New York on April 25, 1934 to Harry and Helen Friedman. He worked as an artist; painting, drawing and making etchings.

"My work is the center of my life. I have lived with many people in many circumstances, and I have always done this work," Partee.
