When not quite four years old, Leo Barusch got badly shaken up along with the rest of his family and the entire city of San Francisco in the Great Quake of 1906. His family's San Francisco house was dynamited in an attempt to stop the fire that resulted from the earthquake. The family re-located to the city of Oakland across the Bay where Leo attended school and graduated from the University of California School of Dentistry in the 1920's. Initially, he assisted various dentists in the Bay area and Modesto, and later after meeting a Roseville dentist, Dr. Harris, went to the town to take a look at possibly working there. His initial night in Roseville at the Rex Hotel which faced Pacific Street and the railroad was a somewhat noisy and sooty one, but not dissuaded, he decided to move to the railroad town and practice dentistry there (in a portion of the second story of the Forlow Building). Initially, he and his wife Yetive Gayetty lived at 417 Oak Street, later moving to a more commodious, Spanish-style home on Park Drive. They were the parents of one daughter named Avalon. He was a member of several organizations including the Lion's Club, and the Masonic order and was a recognized amateur photographer. During World War II, Dr. Barusch served in the U.S. Navy as a LCDR, stationed in Idaho and San Francisco. When he retired in 1974 from his dental practice in Roseville, Dr. Barusch had been a dentist for a total of 48 years, (44 of them in Roseville). His parents Morris Barusch and his mother Amalia Vishek were both born in Poland, immigrating to the United States in 1899.
