    No, people will receive a message that the address doesn’t exist.

    Actually, it's even WORSE than that! The email address you "delete" will continue to exist but will be frozen. You, nor anyone else, can EVER use that address again. So: No, you will NEVER see mail sent to that address; and you will NEVER be able to do anything about it. My Opinion + 79¢ will get you a Senior Coffee at most fast food joints, but here it is: Notify your contacts of your new address and then just ABANDON the gmail address by not opening it. Eventually the Inbox will get to 100% and incoming mail will be rejected. Then, one day if you want, you can reclaim the address by visitation.
