How can I delete permanently a person's old email address

Customer Question

How can I delete permanently a person's old email address that pops up in my "to" section when I try to compose a letter.
JA: Just to clarify, what email service provider are you using?
Customer: gmail
JA: How do you access your email most often? On a phone or tablet, or through a web browser?
Customer: through a browser on my desk top computer. I usually use chrome.
JA: What troubleshooting have you tried?
Customer: I just spent about three hours trying to find an answer. I found several methods on the internet, which I followed but didn't work. I read through all the questions on both of your suggested lists (the second one being the "forum",where there supposed to be answers. It was inhumanly long, but I went through to the end. None of the questions matched mine.
JA: Anything else you want the email expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: I just want an answer to my question. I think some of the methods I found on the internet may have been for an older version of gmail. Not sure.
