InfoLesinski was born in Detroit, Michigan and lived in Detroit and Grosse Pointe Shores. He graduated from the University of Detroit Law School in 1950 and served as warrant officer in the Maritime Service with action in the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian theatres during World War II. He was a member of the law firm of Lesinski & Paruk of Detroit.

He served as a Democrat in the Michigan State House of Representatives, from Wayne County's 1st District, 1951-54, and Wayne County's 7th District, 1955-60. He was elected and served as Lieutenant Governor of Michigan from 1961 to 1964.

Lesinski was the 51st Lieutenant Governor of Michigan serving under Governors John Swainson and George W. Romney. Although George W. Romney was a Republican, Lesinski was a Democrat, and defeated Romney's running mate, since the Governor and Lieutenant Governor were at that time elected separately in Michigan.
