How do I uninstall Tomcat 7 from my Ubuntu server?

Hi all,

I installed Tomcat on my Ubuntu 14.04 server recently using the following procedure (I was following a tutorial I found on Digital Ocean):
sudo apt-get install tomcat7
sudo apt-get install tomcat7-docs tomcat7-admin tomcat7-examples
sudo apt-get install default-jdk
sudo apt-get install ant git

Open in new window

How do I uninstall it completely now? Of course I would like the rest of the server to remain intact and working.
