shared folder permissions - folder owner creator cannot delete folders

The server is SBS2011,  NTFS permissions show the end user as being the share folders owner. I have made sure that within advanced security settings permissions that the owner has full permissions that are pushed down through the folder and its child objects.
the folder is NOT inheriting any permissions from the share folders parent object.
I also checked that sharing permissions and even though the users account was not in sharing I added it with read write access level just to see if it would allow him to delete child objects.
I changed the owner from the user to domain admin. Tested if he could delete cause he has full permissions through advanced security settings anyhow. still no luck. Changed owner back the end user and tested no luck.
Any ideas??

After you changed user to admin, did user logoff then logon?

If the user is accessing the data via a share and you say you gave said user read/write permissions then that is all the permissions that users will have even though you have given him full control on the NTFS level. If you want him to have full control then you must also give him that at the share level. In other words, using another example, if a user has only read permissions on a share, and if that same user has read/write on the folder/NTFS level all that user will be allowed to do is read since the share permission is limiting what he can do when connected to that share.

To add to lionelmm's response...

For the share, give Authenticated Users full control. Then, fine control the permissions via Security (NTFS) tab. There, add your groups, OU, etc.
