Born in Baltimore, he was the son of Elmer Frank Marousek Sr., a house painter, and Mary Frances Marousek, a Hochschild Kohn & Co. department store sales associate.

He was raised on Rose Street in East Baltimore, and was a 1958 graduate of Calvert Hall College High School, where he played varsity basketball.

He obtained both a bachelor's degree in criminal justice and a law degree in 1963 from the University of Baltimore. While in college he was a member of its basketball team.

Mr. Marousek joined the FBI in 1959 as a special agent. During his career he was assigned to field offices in Michigan, Indiana and New York before returning to the Baltimore field office.

He then spent a decade assigned to the NASA Office of the Inspector General. He retired in 1996.

The longtime Sykesville resident was a Baltimore Ravens fan.

His daughter, Luann Michele Hollenberger of Marriottsville, said Mr. Marousek also enjoyed having lunch with friends "for years and years" at Timbkutu in Hanover, Anne Arundel County.

He was an avid reader of newspapers and magazines and liked keeping up with current events, his daughter said. He was also a dog fancier.
