General answer to this is at https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Confluence-questions/How-to-change-the-owner-author-of-a-page-in-Confluence/qaq-p/6734

 

But wouldn't it make sense to keep them for auditing reasons? Just because someone is no longer with the company doesn't mean they didn't do those actions.

To save you reading the link, the answer boils down to "don't".  It involves hacking the database and destroying your audit information, which really doesn't sound good to any compliance or regulator type people.
