Looking for an Analog short story, circa 1960. All life on earth is destroyed by mankind. One man escapes in a rocket. He knows he can't survive in space. Crash-lands on the now barren rock that used to be the earth. His is pursued by an animal, which he kills. (I don't remember whence the animal.) He goes to an ocean to die, knowing that the bacteria in his body will act to "reseed" the earth.
