The details (from wikipedia)


Merrill Womach (February 7, 1927 – December 28, 2014) was an American undertaker, organist and gospel singer, notable both for founding National Music Service (now Global Distribution Network, Inc.), which provided recorded music to funeral homes across America, and for surviving a Thursday, November 23, 1961 plane crash in Beaver Marsh, Oregon that left him disfigured with third degree burns on his hands and his entire head.

Womach authorized an autobiography of his recovery titled Tested by Fire, co-authored with his former wife Virginia with help from Mel and Lyla White. A documentary film titled He Restoreth My Soul was also made about Womach's accident and subsequent recovery.

He died in his sleep on December 28, 2014.
