How to disable ssh login? or recover a ssh key

Hello, Im taking over the admin of our servers, but the previous admin didn’t give us the ssh keys to connect to the servers, he configure every thing to his machine, and said that he no longer have them. I reseted the passwords but I can’t connect via terminal to any servers to add my own keys, there is a way to stop the ssh?, I tried to stop the ssh from the console on the droplet security section but it said that service.ssh don’t loaded .

There is any suggestion to fix this?
