Key Ring Questions

I have a couple questions around the maintenance/clean up of gnuPG key

1) We have gnuPG installed and used by 3 users on one Unix type server.
One of the 3 users was used for initial setup and testing of the gnuPG
software and is no longer used.  Is it possible to remove the key, and key
ring from this user?  Is it as simple as deleting the .gnupg directory
under that users home directory?

2)Is it possible to remove keys from the key ring if they are no longer
used?  Example: a key was imported for use a year ago, but is no longer
used for encryption/decryption.  Is there a way to remove it?

Thanks for the help.
