The Partnership Deed is a vital document to go through and find the resolution therein, as prescribed therein. However on your very general query in absence of your partnership deed, served a notice on such annoyed partner and thereafter take resolution between all of you being three partners and settled account of such annoyed partner and retired him from the partnership on being preparing the Deed of retirement of such annoyed partner on settlement of his accounts with the firm.

This is a peculiar situation and such events are not foreseen while executing partnership deed.  You have remedies under partnership act and according to that, you may get your partnership firm dissolved or seek other remedies in accordance with law.
