Bob Miner


Bob Miner

Bob Miner (1942-1994) co-founded Software Development Labs in August 1977 with Larry Ellison, and Ed Oates. Software Development Labs later became Oracle Corporation.

If Larry Ellison was the brain behind Oracle, Bob Miner was its heart. Bob was a co-founder and a well-liked manager for much of the company's early years.

He grew up in an Assyrian family in Cicero, Illinois.

He graduated in mathematics in 1963 from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

Robert purchased Oakville Ranch Vineyards in 1989. Upon his death from Mesothelioma the ranch was managed by his nephew Dave Miner. Later Dave Miner went on to found his own wine label under the name Miner Family Vineyards.
