  9. To remove someone as an owner, the owner can click Unsubscribe themselves, or another owner remove them from the calendar .

Important: If the person who created the calendar is removed from the "Share with specific people" section, the calendar will be deleted for everyone if nobody else on the calendar had "Make changes AND manage sharing" permissions.
