Obituary for Mark Walter Henderson
March 6, 1960 – April 25, 2021

Mark Henderson passed away peacefully on April 25, 2021. He was a businessman, devoted friend and had a love for extreme sports. Mark was born in Spokane, WA. As a young man, he became actively involved in the skydiving community. Mark had well over 2,500 skydive jumps. On many of those jumps he introduced someone new to skydiving. He was quick to always invite someone along with him to experience the adrenaline and peacefulness of skydiving. He loved soccer, dirt bikes, mountain biking, and traveling the world.
Mark had no kids, but loved and treated Pool World as his own. He was the active General Business Manager at Pool World where his Mother and Father (Lyla and Kerry Henderson) started the company. The passion he had to create backyard vacations in the Inland Northwest was unmatched. Mark attended East Valley High School in the Spokane Valley and graduated from Eastern Washington University in 1982 where he studied business and accounting to fulfill the needs at Pool World. To say he was a hard worker would be an understatement. Mark was an amazing mentor and trained others to work hard and live life to the fullest. He was able to train others to help with the business so he could travel more. He took advantage of the extra time and traveled the world with friends including Iceland, Vietnam, Egypt, Hong Kong, Japan, and many other countries. Mark even backpacked through Europe for two weeks with some of his friends. Those adventures and shared experiences not only are memories that will be with him and friends forever, they also changed his life as he saw and learned about new cultures. Through his travels he gained a greater appreciation of the United States.
Mark truly lived to give to others. He was a very generous man in all aspects. As a devoted friend and colleague to others, he always strived to do the right thing. He will be missed by all who knew him.
Mark Henderson is survived by his mother Lyla Mae Henderson and sister Kariann Albert (Durwood), Kariann has been a part of Pool World since it was founded in 1976; their children Brandi (Dan) and April (Chris); nephews Jaden and Gage; niece Nya; and his Aunt, Doris Van Winkel.
