Played by James Cromwell
Geology professor George Sibley entered the Fishers' lives serendipitously. After attending a funeral at Fisher & Diaz, he returned to retrieve a pair of reading glasses and ended up with an emotionally devastated Ruth sobbing into his lapel. Lisa had just been reported missing and Ruth, desperate for comfort, collapsed onto George. When she apologized for weeping in front of a complete stranger, he gently replied, "Not anymore, I'm not."
