His recurring catchphrase was Cheee!He married twice and had his daughter "Coqui", with his first wife, Rosa.While still married, Marrone fell in love with Juanita Martínez, but they waited to get together until Rosa died.
In 2001, eleven years after Marrone's death, Juanita committed suicide, and her body was found with a picture of Marrone in her hands. "Pepitito" Jose Marrone was one of the most outstanding comedians in Argentina between the early 1950s and the late 1960s.
