Removing a non-existent Exchange 2003 server from ESM

I have a 2003 Exchange Server listed in Exchange System Manager that has been dead and gone for over a year. The present Ex2k3 box is set as master. Can I just right-click the server name under first administrative group and select delete? Will that take care of the routing and replication entries as well? I've already cleaned up AD and DNS and no entries remain but it still shows in ESM.

Yes you can delete the server through ESM.
Additionally you can remove this from adsiedit as well.

You can delete the entry as you mentioned that you have gone through AD and DNS cleanup. But before deleting just verify that the present server has all the required routing connector available.

Just set the present serer as Master.

P.S. I believe you have done the cleanup through ADSIEDIT.
