John Gothier is one of the pre-made NPC repairmen who resides in Desiderata Valley, the neighborhood shipped with The Sims 2: FreeTime. The other two repairmen are Kaylynn Curtin and Gretchen Miguel. He can be made playable by befriending and asking him to move in, or by marrying him.
John has short grey hair, light blue eyes and tanned skin. He is a Knowledge Sim with the Pisces zodiac sign. As far as personality, John is quite active, somewhat nice, and a little bit outgoing. But he is very serious and quite sloppy.
When it comes to John's skill points, he has maximized the mechanical and cleaning skills. He is mostly interested in Weather, Crime, and Sports. John has the same facial structure as Christopher Kimbrell. According to his SimDNA in SimPE, his hair was black before it turned grey.
Despite being a repairman, John's head-shot reveals that he doesn't wear the stereotypical repairmen outfit before he is first spawned in-game. There are several other NPCs from Desiderata Valley who also have this quirk. Sometimes if he is made playable, his PlumbBob will be inside him, instead of above his head. This happens with several other NPCs in The Sims 2. John's pre-destined hobby is Sports.
