Ok - I was able to get taskcleaner.sh working.  I stopped ovirt-engine service, 
ran the script and cleared out active and zombie tasks.  Restarted the engine, 
put the host into maintenance mode and was FINALLY able to remove it.

Thanks a ton for your assistance, it is truly appreciated.

Thanks,
Tony

If there is a task still running (well the database thinks a task is running as 
obviously the host is gone), you maybe be able to use the taskcleaner.sh 
utility to clear out the running task.

taskcleaner.sh -h will give you all the options.

it should be in /share/ovirt-engine/setup/dbutils/taskcleaner.sh
