He is a graduate of City College of New York, and served in the U.S. Army from 1952 to 1954. He was a business executive, running several food brokerage companies in the New York metropolitan area. He served as an elected Republican County Committeeman in Maplewood, New Jersey during the 1970s and 1980s.

He ran on a ticket with Wayne Mayor Newton Miller, finishing fourth in a field of seven candidates for two seats. Incumbent Jane Burgio was the top vote-getter, with Essex County Republican Chairman Frederic Remington winning the nomination for Kean's seat. Remington ran 2,905 votes ahead of Lapidus. In 1978, Lapidus won the Republican nomination for Essex County Freeholder, but lost the General Election. He was elected to the Bedminster Township Committee in 1996, and died in office.
