    404 pages will take a few crawls for it to be removed from the index

    there are 2 ways to remove it faster

    go to search console and use the removal tool this is the quickist way
    use a 410 code if you know that page is not going to be used again
    one thing you need to check for first is that the page does not have any backlinks because if you 404 a page with good backlinks it will hurt the whole site, so make sure you 301 those pages to a recent page that would be useful to the user

    Shouldn't take too long. I know you used to be able to use the console to remove or redirect the 404 &crawl your site and I think I remember it updating quicker that way.
