Gordon Davies was the husband of Joan Davies. A fellow teacher, they had met at college after his national service in the RAF where he attained the rank of Flight Sergeant and they married in March 1961 at St. Thomas's Church. Gordon had a deep respect for his middle-class parents, refusing to help behind the bar of the Rovers Return as his father would disapprove. Future father-in-law Jack Walker introduced Gordon to drink with various spirits but they had very little effect upon him and instead it was Jack who ended up drunk.
Following the wedding they moved to Derby and, while Joan made infrequent visits back home, Gordon seemingly never returned to the street again. Joan's parents visited them often and on one such visit in June 1970, Jack suddenly died. After that, Annie Walker went to stay with the Davies many times before she left the street for good.
While Joan expressed reservations about her marriage upon a return visit to Weatherfield in 1963, primarily caused by his wish for her to be a housewife and also his not wanting children, they were still happily married and living at 4 Peacock Drive by the time Annie began living with them after her retirement in 1984.
