Hey, thanks!

 Well I had to add my admin login to get it to work, but the info you gave me got it solved!

[root@ldap01:~/ldap] #ldapdelete -v -x  'uid=spencer,ou=People,dc=jokefire,dc=com' -D cn=admin,dc=jokefire,dc=com -W
ldap_initialize( <DEFAULT> )
Enter LDAP Password: 
deleting entry "uid=spencer,ou=People,dc=jokefire,dc=com"

SUCCESS!!! Really appreciate the help!

The 'dn: ' bit is not part of the DN, try 

ldapdelete -v -x -W uid=spencer,ou=People,dc=example,dc=com
