Lawrence was born in Fells Point to the late Frank and Mary (Cebula) Zalewski. He grew up in Fells Point and graduated from Patterson Park High School. He served his country faithfully and honorably during the Korean Conflict from 1951-1953. He worked as a supervisor with the Social Security Administration for over 30 years, until his retirement.

Zalewski; children, Sherrie Johns (Jack), Frank Zalewski, Sr., and Mary Nowland Crook (Paul); 9 grandchildren, Jennifer Creech (Bob), Rebecca Bronakoski (Michael), Amanda Nowland, Nicole Nowland, Robert Nowland (Katie), Stefani Moore, Hope Messinger, Zachary Zalewski, and Frank Zalewski, Jr. ; 3 great-grandchildren, Matthew Creech, Jonathan Creech, and Kayla Bronakoski.
