best way to remove products in M2.1

Hi

I have the following business case and i'm wondering how I should delete products with associated orders and invoices. 

Lets say we've selling product A for years and we no longer offering that product on our website. 

I tried to delete that product completely but when I view the order that has this product, it gives me the following error in var/log/system.log :

[2017-10-31 10:50:08] main.CRITICAL: Requested product doesn't exist [] []

 

The frontend page shows blank page when i'm trying to view this order. 

 

What's the best way to remove the product and still keep it in the  orders/invoices history  ? 

 

Thanks in advance

Could you disable the product rather than delete?
