    Is it a calendar that's not "read only"?

    What repeating event? Holidays you can't delete. You can delete all holidays from the Calendar. But not just one. You can't delete events someone else created and invited you to and you accepted. You can't delete events shared in Family Sharing by the family organizer. There may be other events that can't be deleted. Events you created. Like a Dental appointment, you can delete.

    I just encountered exactly the same issue on my new iphone7! The person is dead, but my own repeating B Day reminder has no option for me to delete it!!!. Very frustrating.

    I also had this problem. A recurring work event, set up by a manager, that was no longer relevant.
    Since I didn't create the event I was unable to edit it on my iPhone.
    Clicking on the event in my calendar, then scrolling down, gave me the option to "decline". After pressing this, I was asked wether I wished to decline this one occasion or all the times it repeated in the future. Press on repeat option & the recurring event now disappears.
    Hope this helps.
