Born in Bingham, Utah, Marriott was educated in the public schools of Sandy, Utah, and graduated from Jordan High School in 1958. He received a B.S. from the University of Utah in 1967, and a Chartered Life Underwriter (CLU) designation from the American College of Life Underwriters in 1968. He later worked as a life insurance agent and was owner-president of a Utah-based firm specializing in business and pension consultation from 1968 to 1976.

He is a resident of Salt Lake City, Utah.
