Steve Elliott is a crop duster in Hooterville who became a loyal friend of the Bradleys and eventually went on to marry Betty Jo Bradley and together they had two children, Kathy Jo Elliot and a second unknown child.
Steve is a very kind and friendly individual with a love for singing and flying. During his bachelor days, he was a bit of womanizer who could not resist beautiful women and it was his womanizing ways which fortunately intertwined his fate with that of the Bradleys. He is shown to care about them as though they were his own kin and he was gladly welcomed into their family, and even more so after his marriage to Betty Jo.
