It would be easier for someone to help if you included any of the following that you might know of:

Location - Country and city/town of b, m, d.

Dates or approximate dates of b, m, d.

Names of any parents, siblings, spouses, children that would help narrow down this ancestor.
I don't really know much other than he had three sisters Shirley Gail and brenda. He had a son name Clayton which is my father! Three daugters Bobbie Tammy and Donna. He lived lived in new orleans
If you could provide a date or approximate date of your dads birth it would help as there are several Clayton Parkers in LA census'.  Depending whether you yourself are 18 or 81! - it may be that your grandfather was b in 1880's or 1960's.

If your dad is living, substract 30 years from his year of birth - to get an estimate on your grandfathers birth year - and post that.
OK he was born in 1932

Here is a possibility - there is a Clayton, son of Sherman Parker and Lillian Boggs with a  sister Shirley, and some older siblings as well.  Any of the children born after 1940 wouldn't show up on online census data - because it isn't published beyond that date.
