In Loving Memory of Jack

It is with a heavy heart we say goodbye to John C. Cuneo, beloved firefighter, father, grandfather, friend and founder of The Fire Bell. John (a.k.a Jack) served his community well as a Marine in the Korean War and provided 40 years of Fire Service, ending his long fire career as Deputy Chief of the Tewksbury Fire Department.

Being an avid fire collector himself, Jack “retired” to Cape Cod, where he opened The Fire Bell Gift and Collectable Shop. For the past 32+ years, he has spread his knowledge and enthusiasm for fire collecting with visitors that came to the shop from all over the world. Although he worked full time through his entire “retirement”, he loved every minute of it, creating lifelong friendships with the loyal customers he met throughout the years.

The firefighting community has been like a second family to us here at The Fire Bell, offering friendship and support whenever it was needed. The loving response to Jack’s passing from the firefighting community has been overwhelming during this difficult time. For this, and for the patronage of all of our loyal customers, on behalf of my father, Jack, and myself, I extend my eternally gratitude.

As Jack’s daughter, I will try to live up to his high standard of service for our customers moving forward, and will announce regular store hours for the summer season soon, but as always, our website is available 24/7 for your online shopping convenience.

Shipping Fee for Small Item or Oversized Orders

If placing an order for only a few small items such as jewelry, key chains, magnets or stickers that can fit into an envelope rather than a shipping box, the flat rate shipping charge may be discounted. The flat rate charge will still show up when you place an order, but you will be notified by email with the new, discounted shipping fee if it applies to your order. You will only be charge for the discounted shipping fee, not the original flat fee.

If you place an oversized order, meaning many items that will require multiple shipping boxes or an oversized shipping box, you may be subject to an additional shipping fee besides the flat shipping rate. If this occurs, you will be notified by email before you are charged, so you will have opportunity to decline the extra charge and edit your order accordingly.

Thank you for your patients on this matter until we can find a permanent solution for the small item and oversized item shipping fee dilemma!
