Removed a user's AD account and now when I attempt to remove Exchange email account error message indicates AD Object not found.  

How do I now delete the user's email account?

If an administrator deletes a user account that has a mailbox, the Exchange Information store will eventually detect that the mailbox is no longer connected to a user account and mark that mailbox for deletion

Please allow a few minutes or more for the replication to occur trough the AD.
If you can't wait so much, run an "repadmin /syncall" on a DC, close the EMC and open it again.
The exchange mailbox should be now marked as disconnected and you should be able to delete it.

If you want to remove the email account from disconnected mailboxes, run the following command using Exchange PowerShell

Get-MailboxStatistics -Database "Mailbox Database" | Where-Object {$_.DisconnectDate -Notlike $NULL} | FL DisplayName, DisconnectDate, MailboxGuid

You will see below output:

DisplayName    : Email account
DisconnectDate : 8/28/2014 12:08:34 PM
MailboxGuid    : 2afa7ccd-cb82-47ac-9615-6a52c3d79162

Remove-Mailbox -Database "Mailbox Database" -StoreMailboxIdentity 2afa7ccd-cb82-47ac-9615-6a52c3d79162
