The NET Bible has the following note that is of
interest to me. 

8tn For the translation of APERCOMAI;  L&N 13.93 has
"to go out of existence—'to cease to exist, to pass
away, to cease.'"

I don't have/own L&N and would be very interested in
knowing what SOURCE(S) they cite to support this
definition. I just wanted to check the sources myself.

L&N doesn't cite sources. It just lists 
definitions/meanings, and gives a NT verse as an example
where the word has that meaning.

I don't know how the following cut-and-paste from Logos 
will appear:

13.93  παράγωc; παρέρχομαιd; ἀπέρχομαιb; ἐξέρχομαιb: to go out of
existence—‘to cease to exist, to pass away, to cease.’

παράγωc: ὁ κόσμος παράγεται ‘the world passes away’ 1 Jn 2.17.

  παρέρχομαιd: ὁ οὐρανὸς καὶ ἡ γῆ παρελεύσεται, οἱ δὲ λόγοι μοÏ
 οὐ μὴ παρέλθωσιν
‘heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away’ Mt 24.35.
ἀπέρχομαιb: ἡ οὐαὶ ἡ μία ἀπῆλθεν ‘the first horror ceased’ Re 9.12; εὐθὺς ἀπῆλθεν
ἀπ̓ αὐτοῦ ἡ λέπρα ‘at once the leprosy left him’ Mk 1.42.
ἐξέρχομαιb: ἰδόντες δὲ οἱ κύριοι αὐτῆς á½
τι ἐξῆλθεν ἡ ἐλπὶς τῆς ἐργασίας αὐτῶν ‘when
her owners realized that their chance of making money no longer existed’ or ‘ …
was gone’ Ac 16.19.
