Here you go to decommission legacy Exchange2010 from Exchange2013 org.

excellent article unfortunately i find that server which needs to be demoted  is also having exchange 2013 with windows 2012 and they already move all the mailbox from this server.
so the same procedure will be applied in this scenario i ll just power on the server and uninstall the exchange roles installed on this server
