Art was born on Feb. 21, 1931, in South Bend, and was the only child of Stanley Marosz and Clara Rozwarski Marosz.

He was an active member of the Tippecanoe Lake Country Club where he served on the Board of Directors, and the Tippecanoe Lake Property Owners Association where he served as Landing Director. Art was a winter resident of the Highland Woods Country Club in Bonita Springs, Fla.
Art graduated in 1949 from South Bend Central High School and in 1953 graduated from Indiana University. He served as a Sergeant in the US Army during the Korean War. Art began his insurance career with the Aetna Insurance Company in Indianapolis before relocating to Warsaw in 1958 to work with W. Robert Hall. In 1964, The Hall & Marose Agency, Inc. was established.
