On March 24th, 2021, Michael (Mike) Milnes passed away at the age of 57. Mike was born on June 21st, 1963 in Lawrence, MA to Yvonne Kivell (Begin), who he adored. He worked at Malden Mills in Lawrence for greater than 20 years. He married the love of his life Traci Lavigne on August 22, 1998. They raised one beautiful daughter, Cassandra Milnes.

Mike had a bright personality that was always complimented by the biggest smile. One of the things that made him happiest is sports. Name a sport, he played it. Need a statistic, he knew it.  He won the punt, pass, kick championship and would tell you any chance he got.

Any time someone drove by the house, he was outside in the yard doing something. He always had a project to keep him busy, but if you pulled over to talk, he would pull out the chairs and talk for hours.

He is survived by his mother Yvonne, his wife Traci, his daughter Cassandra, his brothers and their wives, Dave and Kathy, Jim and Lynn, Keith and Abby, and Scott, his sister Kim, along with many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, and nephews.

Funeral services and burial will be private. Arrangements are by the Dewhirst & Boles Funeral Home, 80 Broadway, Methuen. To leave an online condolence, please visit Mike’s tribute page at
