Derek Gee is the son of Violet Buckle and the late Bert Gee, his parents were very happy together so Derek grew up in a happy home. But his father died leaving Violet a widow, Derek then joined the navy and sent his mother Turkish coffee that he got on a holiday. He was based in Plymouth and suggested his mother come to live with him, but she ended up getting engaged to Fred Buckle.

Derek was due some leave from the navy so his mother and soon to be stepfather arranged the wedding for that. Derek is seen not very visible in the procession after the wedding to Nonnatus House, he was seen talking to his new stepsister Marlene at the reception. Derek was not seen or mentioned after that point, in Series 6 when Violet began the menopause she said she missed the days when she was young and a mum.  

Derek himself has not once been mentioned even in passing after that point, not even when his mother was elected to local council or became mayor, nor where either of Fred's daughters or his grandchildren.
