For context, the Google home device in question is a home mini, And the account I'm trying to remove is for a user that is no longer among the living.
We have deemed removing his account to be the best option because, When they were still alive, they had a different voice option from the rest of the users for the household. And it switches voices whenever it doesn't recognize who's speaking.

Hi Joseph Hunt 6596,
I'm sorry to hear of your loss. Normally, someone would sign into the Google Home app with their account, then tap the device and remove their voice match in the device settings. I'm assuming that won't be possible, so the only way to reset voice match would be to reset your speaker or display, then set it up again.
