If you're using the GMail app, just swipe left on the message if you're in the inbox list view, or tap the trashcan icon if you're viewing the contents of the e-mail.

Remember, in your settings, you can set the trashcan action to either delete, archive, or ask you what to do every time.

And don't be surprised if the email re-apppears. The Gmail app seems to have a knack of deleting the email from th phone but not from the server, so you keep getting deleted emails over and over for a while, until they finally delete from the server (or run past the time that the GMail app is set to store them).

Which is why I use Email - delete the email and it stays deleted.

Weird, that's never happened to me. Ever. Sure, it may take some time between the e-mail getting deleted in one device for the others (and the server) to notice, but in a few seconds the e-mail is gone everywhere. And I haven't gotten any undead e-mails back haha
