Out of curiosity, why don't you put a redirect in place?
The pages I am trying to kill were related to customer service questions/answers. When I closed my business they are no longer required for anything and not related to any other content on that site. Every now and then I find a few that are in obscure directories. I keep them on the site because occasionally (3 years later) I still get customers asking "How do I ...". It is an old handmade site that I don't do much with but leave it there because now it gives instructions for others.
