INDIANAPOLIS — Radio personality and comedian Ron Sexton, best known for voicing “Donnie Baker” on “The Bob & Tom Show,” has died at the age of 52.

Sexton’s family announced his death in a post to his “Donnie Baker” Facebook page on Saturday.

“It is with immense sadness that we let everyone know that Ron Sexton passed away yesterday. He was Donnie Baker to most of you, but Ron and Dad to us,” the post reads. “Please respect our privacy at this time and pray for our family.”
