Very old pear tree (dying gracefully?)

My very old pear tree is on its last legs. Id like to cut it back significantly for less shade and less bird droppings on vegetables below. Id prefer to let it die gracefully rather than cut it down altogether. Any advice on what and where to cut?
Many thanks, Andy
