Let me move this to the Acrobat forum for you, where you are more likely to receive an answer to your question.

Not possible without invalidating the signature. A Digital Signature prevents editing the file, including splitting it up while still keeping it signed. Imagine someone took a page from a contract you signed and pretended it was a self-standing document? Who knows what information there was on the other pages that you signed up for, which is now gone? Luckily, that's not possible with a digitally signed file.

In my case I need to use the content from the official record to support another process.  I am fine with the validation not working in the portion I am extracting for use (use of document versus official record of documetn), I just want to see the person's signature name, date.  I can go to the official unaltered record to get the validation.  Thanks

An unvalidated signature is worthless. You might as well remove it altogether.

Pages don't have signatures. Really. Documents, whole documents, have signatures, and what it supports is the entire document. The on-page stamp is a useless and pointless decoration of no value. You can't remove part - imagine if a page of a contract could be removed, leaving it still signed... so, a complete non/starter I'm afraid.
