    Drag them away from the Dock and *puff* they're gone.

    The dock is just holding shortcuts to the applications. Hence, they will remain there after removing/ deleting any application. Since the shortcut can't see the original application anymore, you might just see a question mark eventually. In any case, proceed as mentioned above.
