Cedric Nelson Davis, a salesman for a local firm that manufactures embroidery products for global distribution, died of a stroke Saturday at his home in Westminster. He was 58.

Mr. Davis worked nearly 40 years for Lions Brothers Co. in Owings Mills and traveled around the world for the firm, which is a maker of hats and insignias for the military and groups such as the Boy Scouts of America.

"He established the company's operations in China; he was very proud of that," said his wife of 37 years, Barbara A. Davis.

Mr. Davis was born in Westminster and was a lifelong resident. He graduated from Westminster High School in 1961.

He played amateur football for the Carroll County Chargers and participated on county-level championship softball teams. Mr. Davis also enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren and drag racing.

Services will be held at 11 a.m. tomorrow at Fletcher Funeral Home, 254 E. Main St., Westminster.

In addition to his wife, survivors include three sons, Eric N. Davis of Annapolis and Jeffrey H. and Kim Davis, both of Westminster; three sisters, Gloria Maier and Lavina Doan of Westminster and Charlotte Davis of Reisterstown; five brothers, Robert C. Davis Jr., Larry Davis and Len Davis, all of Westminster, Lee Davis of Gettysburg, Pa., and Steven Davis of Finksburg; and three grandchildren.
