PostgreSQL: ERROR: role “user” cannot be dropped because some objects depend on it

When attempting to remove a user role from PostgreSQL it is possible to get an error. This error will be received if the role attempting to be removed still has access privileges for instance SELECT privileges on specific tables. Below I describe the error as well as how to remove access privileges for each table as well as a link to a previous article we wrote that will loop through every table within a specified database and revoke privileges.
